Glens Independent Councillor Padraig McShane has described a consultation on Leisure Provision in Ballycastle as, ‘A successful first engagement and more opportunities for the community to have their say will follow’.

The Councillor was speaking following a day long ‘drop in’ consultation at Sheskburn House last week. Officers from the Council listened as members of the public had their say on what should be available to enhance Leisure Provision in the future. Ballycastle has been identified as having the most pressing need for indoor facilities including a swimming pool.

Councillor McShane said;

“Officers and staff are to be commended for bringing together a number of options that have the potential to transform leisure and recreation provision in the Town. The work is a continuation of the efforts carried out by the legacy Moyle Council when it had identified the need to restructure and upgrade its current arrangements.

“A swimming pool with accompanying health suites in a brand new purpose built Leisure Centre remains our top priority. I’m aware that some people did not get to attend the first consultation so following a workshop in early April for Councillors another public consultation will be held”.

Councillor McShane stressed the ownership of the facility would be for the local community and it was for them to design and delivery for themselves as we move to design and planning stages.
