Cllr Derek Mitchell

Having been a Councillor for 20 years I want to show you some of the issues which I have worked on and those which I hope to work on after the local elections:

  • I led the campaign to rebuild the harbour, it is now one of the best leisure harbours in Ireland and a good town focal point. The first harbour built on the open sea in Ireland since Rosslare Harbour in 1906.
  • DART & trains to Kilcoole. Led 22 year campaign to get DART. Wrote a paper on improvements needed now.
  • N11 Upgrade. I have lobbied for years and a major design study is now underway and it is included in National Development Plan. Public consultation day held in Glenview Hotel.
  • Lobbied for more services and held meetings in Greystones, Kilcoole & Newcastle about Bus Connects improvements. Lobbied for express buses on N11 and bus priority.

Other issues which I have worked on:

  • Park n’ Ride site
  • Greystones Way & other walks
  • footpaths
  • bike racks at DART
  • protecting Bray Head
  • new schools
  • St. Patricks Day parade
  • Swimming Pool & Sports hall
