GDG to host a Public Consultation in Assembly Hall in Wicklow Town on 10th June 2019

Friday, 7th June 2019

Gavin and Doherty Geosolutions (GDG) have recently been commissioned by Wicklow County Council to conduct a maritime strategic review for the coastal area of Co. Wicklow.

Wicklow has a unique coastal environment, with active harbours and beaches that provide a platform for leisure activity, commercial shipping, fishing and much more. This study aims to engage with local stakeholders and capture the extent of Wicklow maritime activity, with a view to maximising the potential from our coastal resources for the benefit of the entire community.

The intent of this strategic review is to provide non-statutory guidance for the marine area and assist with policy formulation. It also aims to identify ways the economic base of County Wicklow can be strengthened through its ports and harbours.

Ultimately, this study is to promote the Wicklow coast as a business and tourist location. We aim to engage with anyone involved in fisheries, aquaculture, tourism, the environment, offshore renewable energy, maritime transport, heritage, culture, planning and development, and recreation groups, e.g. golf clubs, rowing, sailing, fishing, triathlon, scouting, and sub-aqua clubs. As you are a valuable stakeholder in the area, we would like to get your opinions, issues and feedback on the current issues facing the Wicklow maritime environment.

GDG would like to cordially invite you to join us at a public consultation which will take place in Assembly Hall in Wicklow Town on 10th June 2019 (11:30-17:30).
