Social Democrats Cllr for Greystones, Jodie Neary, has welcomed news that Wicklow County Council are proactively looking for a designated campervan site for holiday-goers visiting Greystones.
Cllr Neary raised the issue at the recent Greystones Municipal District meeting ahead of the summer holiday months when increased numbers of campervans are due to arrive in the town.
Speaking on the issue, Cllr Neary says, “It’s fantastic news that the council are now proactively looking for a designated site for those people visiting with their campervans. I have been engaging with a number of campervan holiday makers who love visiting the area and are keen to see a well-serviced designated space for their campervans.
“To date, there has been no such area for people with campervans leading to use of public parking spaces along the seafront in Greystones or the Irish Rail car park. Many residents have been on to me about issues with parking, traffic management and lack of facilities for campervans which has been an ongoing concerns for residents in the area.
“It’s important that we have an official designated site, close to the town as holiday makers arriving in campervans bring a lot of money to the area. It’s good for local business as well as for the recreational value of Greystones and Wicklow. Tourists arriving in campervans are in need of a well-serviced area such as sewage and water facilities so it’s important we get the right spot. We are looking at areas near the Park & Ride or as part of the South Beach Masterplan. It’s something I have been raising for quite a while and I hope it comes to fruition in the near future.
“It’s also important for residents to be able to continue to live in their area stress free and with certainty especially as the summer months gets busy with tourists visiting the district.
“There has been much concerns raised for many years and I believe this is the first step in trying to find a solution that works for everybody involved,” concludes Cllr. Neary.
