Pictured on a recent inspection of work on the Stephenstown Link Road were Deputy Mayor of Fingal Cllr Grainne Maguire, Cllr Malachy Quinn (SF), Coilin O’Reilly, Senior Executive Officer, Department of Economic, Enterprise and Tourism Development, Fingal County Council, and Cllr Tony Murphy (Ind).

THE Balbriggan Leadership Group has welcomed news that work on the Stephenstown Link Road is on schedule and due to be completed in November. 

The Leadership Group recently held its second meeting since its formation and was given an update on the Link Road. It will run from the existing roundabout on the Stephenstown Road, through the site and through a roundabout on Clonard Hill Road, linking to the back of Millfield and then on to the Naul Road.

The road is a key piece of infrastructure development within Balbriggan as it will open up almost 23 hectares of industrially-zoned lands for development with the potential to bring 900 new jobs to the area.

Fingal County Council owns 22.84 hectares of land within Stephenstown of which 10.2 are zoned as General Employment, in the 2017-2023 County Development Plan with the remaining lands zoned as High Technology.

Brian MacCraith, chairman of the Balbriggan Leadership Group, said: “This is another very good initiative aimed at improving Balbriggan and will greatly assist in the economic development of the town.”

Deputy Mayor of Fingal Cllr Gráinne Maguire said: “It has been shown already in Balbriggan that the availability of fully serviced sites is a major advantage when it comes to persuading firms to set up in the area and this project has the potential to deliver jobs for our community.”

Balbriggan Leadership Group comprises a number of councillors, Senior Fingal County Council officials and key public and private sector stakeholders across the four main pillar themes of Local Economy & Enterprise, Community Affairs & Integration, Employment, Education & Training and Public Realm & Placemaking.

The overall purpose of the Balbriggan Leadership Group is to develop a long-term socio-economic strategy for the town.  The leadership group will oversee the preparation, drafting and agreement of the strategy which will be finalised and delivered in the autumn.
