bwplan1862 Bray Athletic Grounds/Carlisle Grounds, Bray, Co. Wicklow (top), Bray Wanderers Strategic Plan (above)

Further to the Sunday Business Post story on the future of the Bray Wanderers and the inclusion of a new 4500 seat stadium in their future strategic plan.

Bray Wanderers shareholders will lobby present their plans to Councillors tonight in Bray at a public meeting.

Bray Wanderers who currently lease the Carlisle Grounds from the town council cite that the old grounds are not big enough for their future plans and that there is a need to aquire a site outside of Bray for their new greenfield leisure complex.

Steven Matthews, Green Party said:

If they (Bray Wanderers) want to go, it’s up to them, we haven’t initiated any process to ask them to leave. It’s the remit of the councillors to decide what happens to the land. It’s public land, it belongs to the council and we have no plans to develop it.

Any developer looking at Bray would say: There’s one I’d like to keep an eye on.

An exercise in ‘nano-tourism’ at the Slovenian town of Vitanje (pop: 800, annual visitors 25,000) – home to the Cultural Center of European Space Technologies since last year.

In 2015, the town hosted the AA Visiting School project – a two week experimental architecture course organised by the Architectural Association School Of Architecture in London.

One of the projects was a ‘land installation’ (visible from high altitude) featuring the motto of Douglas Adam’s Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Galaxy on a pasture above the town.

A very impressive timelapse of Singapore’s Changi airport by photographer Milton Tan who was given unrestricted access, often filming so close to the landing planes that you can see his tripod shuddering in the turbulence. Tan talks about the experience on his blog.
