Department welcomes planning approval of regeneration initiative in Portrush

The Department for Communities has welcomed planning approval for an events space at West Bay, Portrush, that can also be used for temporary parking.

The project is set to receive £117,000 as part of the Department’s £17m Portrush Regeneration Programme, and will complement other work being done in the town prior to the 148th Open in July.

The work, which will be getting underway shortly, will involve filling in one of two run-down sunken seating areas to create a useable grass-covered events space that can also be used for temporary parking. The other seating area will be completely refurbished as part of the scheme and provide a place to sit and relax whilst enjoying the views of West Bay.

The project was approved at a Causeway Coast & Glens Borough Council Planning Committee meeting on Monday 1 April 2019.

Mark O’Donnell from the Department for Communities said: “This investment will help create a large events space that will also be used for temporary parking during the 148th Open and, if necessary, during other major events. The improvements at West Bay will also provide a lasting legacy for Portrush and is the latest example of the ongoing collaboration between the Department for Communities and Causeway Coast & Glens Borough Council in delivering the £17m Portrush Regeneration Programme.”
