Future of ‘historic’ Catherwood Arcade

1 Mins read

Council’s planning committee will decide the future of the historic ‘Catherwood Arcade’ situated on Main Street in Portrush next week.

Planners have recommended the development of a restaurant and four apartments which could create up to 12 jobs.

The building was previously used as a restaurant and ice-cream parlour.

The officers report mentions that the development is a material planning gain to what exists on the site and will improve the overall visual appearance of
Portrush Main Street.

“The scheme will provide a restaurant with residential accommodation on the upper floors and one apartment at basement level. This proposal will lead to the creation of a new unit within the town centre and the proposed use is considered acceptable in this location. The redevelopment of this site will provide occupancy upon this site
and will help in the regeneration of Portrush at this location.

Within this area there are a mix of town centre uses to include amusements arcades, fast food outlets, B&Bs, bars, restaurants, churches and apartment developments. Given the wide range of uses it is considered that there would not be a clustering of non-retail units at this site.”
