|Type: Development Site||Location: Town centre|
Positioned less than 100 metres from the northern end of Bray’s Main Street, this property currently comprises a derelict light industrial unit, which subject to planning permission, is ideal for redevelopment for residential use.
Under Bray’s current town development plan, the property is zoned for commercial/retail and residential infill. According to a recent appraisal of the site by a firm of local architects, given the objectives of the plan, any application for residential use should be favourably looked upon.
The appraisal also considers that, on the basis that a portion of the site would be designated as a civic space, achievable building densitities would allow the construction of 5-8 apartments or 2-3 dwellings.
Thanks to its highly convenient location just a short walk from the many shops, services, amenities and transport links in the heart of Bray, the property is ideally placed to offer the best of town centre living.
The property falls under the Bray Municipal District Local Area Plan 2018, to which the town/neighbourhood centre and retail stategies, objectives and standards set out in the Wicklow County Development Plan directly apply. The appraisal considers that, subject to planning requirements, an infill residential development on the property would be compatible with the BMD plan objectives.

With access via Dwyer Park, the property is located less than 40 metres from Castle Street, with its popular shopping centre (SuperValu), and Bray Main Street via the Dargle Bridge. The property is also close to the new schools and college campus on the former lands of Bray Golf Club.
Bus stops for the 145 route to Dublin and 185 to Dun Laoghaire are both just a short walk away, while the property is also within easy reach of the regenerated seafront, DART station and other attractions.
With a population of almost 32,000, Bray is the third largest town in Ireland.

The town enjoys a vibrant community life, offers an excellent choice of pre-school, primary and secondary schools, is served by many sports and recreational amenities, and has a thriving tourism industry.
