Bray Seafront has been highly praised in the Irish Business Against Litter (IBAL) Coastal Litter survey. The judges said the famous seafront was deemed “Clean to European Norms”.
The IBAL survey commented that the beach and the immediate hinterland in Bray were excellent with regard to litter. It added: “The area is exceptionally well served by anti-litter notices and litter bins and this, combined with cleaning regime, is certainly having the desired effect. It was really a credit to the users of the facilities and those responsible for the maintenance.”
The Cathaoirleach of Bray Municipal District, Cllr Aoife Flynn Kennedy, expressed her delight at the results of the Coastal Litter Survey and stated: “This was a testament to the investment by Wicklow County Council into Bray Seafront every year. Great credit must go to the staff of Bray Municipal District who for years has made the seafront the jewel in the crown for Bray. The past year has been a difficult time for everyone but the outdoor spaces such as Bray Seafront have been a council priority to ensure that everyone can enjoy this space in a safe and clean environment”.
Chief Executive of Wicklow County Council, Mr. Frank Curran, said: “This acknowledgment of the work and investment by Wicklow County Council is fantastic. We have invested heavily in solar-powered litter bins, new water bottle refill stations. I want to compliment the staff in Bray who have been working tirelessly this past year”.
