Following tonight’s Council meeting ( 8th March 2016 ) to decide on the future of Waterworld. In a statement posted to the Portrush Community Faceboook page, Cllr Trevor Clark said : “Tonight I proposed the item relating to the future of Waterworld and the slides in Coleraine Leisure Centre be held in public.
“When put to the vote, Cllrs Hickey, Mullan, Douglas, Hillis, Holmes, Mulholland and Nicholl voted that the item be held in private section.”
“I and my DUP colleagues were, regrettably, outvoted. I think the decision of those to exclude this important debate from being heard in a public forum is a failure on their part as public representatives. Council is not a secret society and should have heard the item in public.”
Causeway Coast Community understands that no decisions were made at the meeting.
