Members of Causeway Coast and Glens Council’s Leisure & Development Committee met last night to discuss the future of Waterworld in Portrush.

Speaking about the decision to discuss the item In Committee, Cllr William McCandless said “The decision to discuss the Waterworld site in committee was because the Leisure & Development committee were advised prior to the meeting that there were commercial sensitivities surrounding this. This is a recognised code of conduct for discussing this format of business and it is a dangerous precedent to discuss potentially commercial business in an open forum where it can lead to misinterpretation.”

“Accusations of council being a secret society are unjustified, we are custodians of the ratepayer and have to act with regard to commercial decisions in a trustworthy manner. Representation from the Ulster Unionist Party viewed the Waterworld facility on Fri. 4/3 and the consensus of the group is that the Waterworld facility will remain open for business for the 2016 season.”

“We have requested additional information from Council officers to enable us to make a more informed decision as to Waterworlds long term future. The Ulster Unionist grouping would be in agreement that Waterworld provides a necessary service and IF a decision were taken to close then another suitable leisure alternative within the town of Portrush would need to be considered and implemented prior to any closure.”
