Part of the wider Coastal Masterplan from Pickie to Ballyholme, the announcement was made following shortly after Councillor Douglas had presented a motion to Council on the issue.
She said: “I’m absolutely delighted that Council has now committed to investing in the regeneration of the area, following my outline proposals were issued a few months ago. Ballyholme has been neglected for too long, something all parties have been able to get behind as my campaigning on the issue has received cross-party support.
“Ballyholme Promenade is an area of natural beauty which many local residents and visitors enjoy, and must be sensitively managed with any proposals in sympathy with the surroundings. Consultation and engagement with local people and businesses concerning these proposals and the wider Coastal Masterplan is therefore essential to ensure all views are garnered.
“I look forward to seeing the plans being progressed as soon as possible.”
