Recovery and Renewal - an Economic Strategy for the Causeway Coast and Glens

Sub Menu

July 2020

Welcome to the emerging themes for Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council’s Strategy for 2020- 2035.  

We are committed to help shape the Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council as a dynamic, progressive Council and as an exemplar of best practice across all areas of service.  We also seek to work for the benefit of our residents and continue to develop the reputation of our unique geographical location.

Our area prides itself on being a great place to live, work and visit.  Very few areas can boast the richness and diversity of the landscape our Council has to offer - a coastline which stretches over 140 km along the Atlantic Coast from Lough Foyle to the Glens of Antrim, as well as three areas of outstanding natural beauty encompassing Binevenagh, the Causeway Coast and the Glens of Antrim.


The purpose of this work is to prepare Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council’s economic strategy until 2030, with an initial work plan for a three year period.

The borough aspires to  be  a  strong  and  fulfilling  employment  hub  attracting  creative  and  dynamic  people  and businesses, working within a  low-carbon  economy where individuals flourish and are notable for their enterprise, ambition, creativity and pride in the borough.

It is critical that the economic potential of the borough is maximised and that Council promotes the borough’s particular strengths and natural environment to provide a competitive environment that stimulates entrepreneurship and attracts investment, both from home and abroad.


The Strategy will assist the Council  to  lead the borough in achieving its full potential to deliver sustainable wealth and well-being for all its citizens.
