A “Health Check” is to be carried out on Bray Town by consultants appointed by Wicklow County Council.
The “Health Check” is expected to do more than categorise or classify issues such as vacant premises but also be a creative process that articulates possibilities and pathways to enable positive changes for the town.
Consultants Future Analytics study should reflect the fact that a number of initiatives have taken place over a sustained period led by the Council and the business community, such as Bray Economic Think Tank and the Town Rejuvenation Committee.
The repositioning of Main Street in its function, experience and amenity is a potentially important theme for the creative aspects of the study.
The consultants will undertake a stakeholder engagement which will include three stages:
- Online Survey
- Focus Group Workshop
- Wider Community Group Workshop
The wider community workshop is scheduled for Wednesday, September 18th in the Royal Hotel at 7.00pm. The aim of the public consultation events will be to identify:
- What are the existing assets?
- What are the priority actions for town?
- How can they be achieved?
- Who is responsible for leading the action?
- When are actions required to be completed?
A final report will issue and will include a series of recommendations on future opportunities for the town
