The following arrangements are in place for Wicklow County Council Offices and the Municipal District Offices for the week commencing Monday, 24th January 2022.
Wicklow County Council, County Buildings, Wicklow: In order to mitigate exposure to COVID-19 with the recent rise of the Omicron variant in-person public counters at County Buildings Wicklow and the Municipal Districts of Arklow, Blessington, Greystones and Wicklow will be open as follows commencing Monday the 17th January to Friday the 28th of January, both dates inclusive, 9.30 am to 12.30 pm. Bray Municipal District Office is open Monday to Friday 10.00 am to 12.00 pm and 2.00 pm to 3.00 pm. This schedule will be kept under review and members of the public will be kept informed. Wicklow County Council regrets any inconvenience caused. Motor taxation should be renewed online at www.motortax.ie or submitted by post. Planning applications can also be submitted by post. If attending, members of the public will be required to wear Face Coverings at all times in order to minimise the risk of the spread of the COVID-19 virus.
Housing Services, Bray Municipal District: Members of the public are asked to make contact in advance at email@example.com or by telephoning (01) 2744900 if they wish to make an appointment to meet with a member of the housing staff in the Bray Municipal District Offices.
Bray to Greystones Cliff Walk: The Bray to Greystones Cliff Walk remains partially closed, it is safe to walk from Bray along the Cliff Walk as far as Windgates steps. From there, walkers can take the alternative Bray Head Looped Trail, which can be quite challenging or return on the Cliff Walk back to Bray. The Greystones side of the Cliff Walk is extremely dangerous and is closed in certain spots. The Council continues to assess and has put in place measures for the short-term protection of the public and are actively pursuing an alternative route for the sections of the walk which are currently closed due to erosion. The patience and co-operation of the public are appreciated during this partial closure.
Re-opening Business: Outdoor tables and chairs licensing under Section 254, to support social distancing for business to re-open, is extended to 30th June 2022 and valid Section 254 licenses will need to be applied for to cover this extended period.
