March facelift at Pinewood
PINEWOOD estate in Balbriggan will see its community centre begin to spring back to life this March when a reconstruction project of the facility is due to begin.
The new building will primarily be a youth centre for the local community, run by Foroige under licence by Fingal County Council.
Cllr Gráinne Maguire asked Fingal County Council for an update on the project and learned the good news that tender documents are being evaluated and the local authority expects work to begin on the building in March.
Answering Cllr Maguire's question, the council reported: 'The tender documents are complete and are currently being checked with a view to going to tender next week.
'A tender period of four weeks is proposed with a further two weeks to evaluate submissions. It is therefore hoped to be ready to start on site early in March.
'It is intended that the facility will be operated under licence by Foroige and will provide a much needed amenity for the citizens of Balbriggan particularly the youth and will complement the programme of activities offered at the nearby Flemington Community Centre.'
