Portrush Public Realm Scheme stakeholder meeting

Portrush Public Realm Scheme stakeholder meeting

Fri, October 27, 2017

The main contractor responsible for the Portrush Public Realm scheme, FP McCann, will meet with stakeholders at an upcoming public event.

Work on the £6m project will commence shortly. The company will introduce their key staff at the meeting on Monday 6th November in Portrush Town Hall. Representatives from both consultants AECOM and Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council will also be in attendance.

In order to reach as wide an audience as possible, all stakeholders, including members of the public and business representatives, can choose between a lunchtime session at 1pm and an evening session at 7pm.

The Mayor of Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council, Councillor Joan Baird OBE, said: “This initial stakeholders’ meeting marks the first step in a comprehensive engagement plan which will continue until the completion of the project. I would encourage all those with an interest in the town and its future to attend. It’s an exciting time for the entire region, underpinned by our endorsement from Lonely Planet. With this in mind, it’s crucial that, Portrush, as Northern Ireland’s most-visited seaside resort, is fully prepared to reach its potential.”

A public information event regarding the wider Portrush Regeneration Programme will take place in Portrush Town Hall on Monday 20th November at 7pm.

The public realm scheme is managed by Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council and funded by the Department for Communities. 

It will include improvements to Main Street, Dunluce Avenue, Eglinton Street, Ramore Avenue, Lower Lansdowne Road and Bath Terrace.
