Latest press release from Cllr Lourda Scott, issued on Wednesday, September 30th 2020…
Green Party Councillor Lourda Scott welcomes confirmation that the planned crèche in Glenheron Park will be built.
Scott says: “I raised the lack of childcare in Greystones before, with parents expressing frustration in trying to get a place for their child. Last year, I made submissions to An Bord Pleanala arguing a case for providing additional crèche facilities within phase 1 of the Archers Wood development. I am glad that this proposal was taken on board and agreed.
However, a time frame for building community facilities is not usually included in planning permissions. I have been contacted by many parents over the past year regarding the proposed crèche facility in Glenheron Park. Even though the estate is practically complete, the ground where the crèche is to be remains untouched. I have been onto the planning department constantly pushing for movement on this. I was glad to finally receive confirmation at the District Meeting yesterday that Council officials met with the builders and have been assured that building of this facility will start soon.
As parents in the area have faced waiting lists of up to 2 years, this building cannot come quick enough. I will continue to push for rapid movement on this and the other community buildings promised. Once again, I call for an up to date assessment of childcare facilities to be carried out and for a specific timeframe on completion of any community buildings to be included as part of the planning permissions.
If you have had difficulty in getting a childcare place for your child please contact me firstname.lastname@example.org.
