The campaigning residents of Greystones have said they are "utterly delighted" by the decision of Wicklow County Council to incorporate 'no fry zones' into the Wicklow County Development Plan.

Councillors voted by 25 to three at their general meeting last Monday night to support the 'no fry zones' amendment, prohibiting fast-food operators from building or operating fast-food outlets within 400m of schools or playgrounds.

The 'No Fry Zones 4 Kids' campaign was initiated four years ago in response to a plan by fast food giant McDonald's to develop a drive-through outlet beside three schools in Greystones.
