€2 million to be invested in refurbishment of Wexford Quay.

A €1 million grant for the refurbishment of Wexford Quay will be announced by the government today. The official announcement is due to take place at Government Buildings in Dublin at 3 pm this afternoon.

The funds, which are being provided by the Designated Urban Centre Grant, will be met by a similar €1 million investment by the Wexford County Council.

While speaking to Wexford Hub, Councillor George Lawlor said that the Crescent Quay area will be included in the refurbishment – and that Labour TD Brendan Howlin and Wexford County Council Chief Executive Tom Enright had been working on the plan for the past number of months.

‘The plan is also to improve linkages between the quays and the Main Street through improvement works on the various laneways. This along with the purchase of the Trinity Wharf site and the private purchase by Pettits of the Stonebridge development will completely transform this area of Wexford into a hub for business, visitors and locals alike.’

Further details about the plan will be released in the near future.
