Councillor Rory O’Connor has called for a public consultation on an unused building in Bray Town. The building known as the “Design Centre” is located across the road from the Royal Hotel.
The former craft centre is currently sitting idle but was previously used to host over thirty Wicklow craft makers.
The motion wants Bray municipal district to maximize the use of the building known as the “design centre” for the public by doing the following actions.
1. Organise a council visit to the building with the members to see the inside and evaluate the building
2. Do an online public consultation of what should be done to maximise this amenity for the public
3. Have an online meeting to discuss the findings of this public consultation and follow up with actions.
Speaking on this motion Cllr O’Connor said “I believe this building in Bray, could be put to much better use with it having such a perfect location, being directly in the middle of the main street. I think it could be used for [all] sorts of ideas and I think getting these ideas from the public, is the best way we can begin transforming the building into something, that the people of Bray are proud of and maximising a council asset to its full potential to the benefit of the community”
