Minister for Communities Paul Givan has outlined the plans to develop Portrush ahead of the British Open Golf Championship which will be held at Royal Portrush Golf Club in 2019.

Responding to a question from East Londonderry MLA Maurice Bradley, Minister Givan said:

“The Portrush Regeneration Programme is one of my Department’s key priorities in the run up to the British Open Golf Championship planned for July 2019. Subject to approval by the Executive, my Department is planning a number of capital projects to be delivered.

“These projects include:

  • A public realm scheme;
  • The redevelopment of the train station;
  • Measures to address parking facilities in the town; and
  • An Urban Development Grant scheme.

“My Department’s vision is that this planned investment will create a legacy for both local residents and tourists following the 2019 tournament.”
