Bray Co. Wicklow
Masterplan for the environmental enhancement of Bray esplanade. The wonderful Victorian promenade has lost much of it’s former glory over the decades and it’s beauty has been adversely affected by some poorly considered coastal erosion engineering works. We initiated the design process by holding a series of community planning workshops to hear the views of the community and various stakeholders. The master plan maintains the key features of the promenade including the bandstand and railings, provides new street lighting and furniture and creating a zig-zag path linking the promenade path with Strand Road. The plan extends the promenade to provide improved pedestrian access to the harbour area and proposes the creation of a mixed use development around a new marina – forming an exciting new gateway to the town.
