The Lansdowne Masterplan

Following comprehensive consultation and further subsequent development, The Lansdowne Masterplan Final   (Pdf - 4MB) was adopted by Council in October 2014.

Council initiated the masterplanning project to address various ad hoc challenges which had appeared to possibly compromise the unique ambience of the Lansdowne area.

An inter-departmental Steering Group consisting of key public sector interests supported Council throughout the masterplan development process.

The project was jointly funded with the Department for Social Development.

 The consultation process together with the associated significant public interest demonstrated the importance of the area to both residents and visitors alike.

The Lansdowne Masterplan has now been integrated within the broader Portrush Regeneration Strategy which was adopted by Council in 2007 and is currently being implemented.

The masterplan report was produced by The Paul Hogarth Company.
