Dunluce Centre sale motion is rescinded

At Tuesday’s meeting of Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council, a majority of members voted to rescind a motion which was previously ratified regarding the sale of the Dunluce Centre in Portrush.

The motion, which was previously ratified at the Council meeting held on November 2, read: “That Council does not sell to the preferred bidder, but instead repeat the process, go out to the market for a third time with a view to attracting bids which will enhance the town of Portrush and the entire Borough by bringing a year-round experience which can be enjoyed by local families and families visiting the area.”

A new vote was taken on the initial substantive motion: “Accept Mr O’Donnell’s financial bid of £1.21m and his proposal for the development of a Family Entertainment Centre at the Dunluce Centre subject to due legal process being completed for the transfer of title and any legal covenants concerning the development of the site.”
