Lease extension granted for Bray Wanderers

Wicklow County Council have voted to extend the existing lease for Bray Wanderers at Carlisle Ground to 35 years.

The original lease, granted on February 9th 2001, was for a 35 year period.  An additional 23 years were approved today which allows the Club to now plan for the future.

Cathaoirleach of Wicklow County Council and Bray East Ward Councillor, Aoife Flynn Kennedy visited the grounds at their recent open day.  She stated,  ‘It is clear that the new owners are very much focused on the community and how to improve facilities, so as to increase community engagement and enhance player and visitor experience’.

Cllr. Flynn Kennedy noted that the conditions of the lease were not changed and will not allow commercial development or the building of housing on the site.  The new lease however will allow the Club to apply for Sports Capital Funding and make financial investments in the existing facilities which she noted is very welcome. 

Cllr. Flynn Kennedy also welcomed the recent announcement of the partnership with Ardmore Rovers Football Club and the Walking Football Group.  She stated, ‘such initiatives increase the communities connection with the club and grounds, I hope that their efforts are rewarded with an increase support in our local team and more support at matches’.
