Recommended for Confidential Consideration
Alderman Hillis
It is my understanding that Causeway Coast and Glens BC council decision last January was that the Dunluce Centre was to be sold to the preferred bidder. 
1. Has any money changed hands as yet between the preferred bidder and Council?
2. Is the sale subject to a yet unsigned agreement between the purchaser and the Council?
3. Is part of this pending agreement dependant on Council agreeing to permit the purchaser to have 25% of the floor space used for games of chance?
4. Will the future use of the Dunluce Centre not be subject to a planning application as the previous use of the Dunluce Centre would have been for indoor recreations and the now proposed use (in part) would be for an amusement arcade or centre? As these are two materially different uses can it be confirmed that planning permission would need to be obtained?
5. Can it be confirmed that under the Northern Area Plan 2016 (Policy PH03) regarding planning policy on provision of amusement arcades in Portrush it states that no new amusement arcades will be permitted on the Portrush Peninsula ie. the area north of the Croc na mac Road?
6. As this planning policy is still in force is Causeway Coast and Glens Council not going to be in conflict with its own agreed planning policy if it agrees to the 25% floor space at the Dunluce Centre for games of chance?
