1 Mins read

Causeway Coast and Glens Tourism Partnership, one of the most successful tourism organisations in Northern Ireland, will close it’s doors at the end of March.

The decision was announced by the Partnership Chairman, Diane Poole OBE, who described it as “deeply regrettable” and commented that a number of financial factors had made their position untenable. Explaining further, Miss Poole said that their funding had mostly come from local authorities in the region but the new Causeway Coast and Glens Council had informed them that there would be a £20,000 drop in tourism marketing investments and that it would also be subject to an open tender process.

Miss Poole and other Directors praised the relationships built over the past sixteen years within both the public and private sectors and said that Local Government investment in the Partnership had done much to support the growth of tourism-related businesses and facilities as well as being important in securing funding from the private sector.
