Councillors give green light towards business case for new Holiday and Leisure Park

Councillors this evening at the Leisure & Development Committee gave the green light towards the development of a proposed Holiday and Leisure Park touring and motorhome facilities at Ballyreagh Road, Portrush.

Councillors heard how Council owns and manages 6 holiday and leisure parks, offering facilities for static caravans, touring caravans, motorhomes, tents, wooden holiday pods, and 1 Aire de Service facility for motorhomes.  The Holiday and Leisure Parks offer a mix of facilities catering for 940 static vans, 350 touring sites, 42 camping sites and 23 pods.

In recent years the demand for overnight facilities for motorhomes has seen a large increase and this has created a problem for those wishing to visit the area, and with the undersupply of sites, many motorhomes have resorted to unauthorised parking at unsuitable locations. In the summer of 2021, the Holiday and Leisure Park team opened both the Ballyreagh Field and at a later date The Bowl, Causeway Street Portrush, to provide a temporary facility to accommodate the high demand for motorhome parking.

Members approved to advance to Stage 1 of the Capital Project Management Process for Ballyreagh Field touring and motorhome facility (business case, costings and outline design).

The item of business will go before full council next month for ratification.
