Approval for Causeway path

PLANNING approval has been given for the National Trust to construct a new pedestrian and cycle path to link the existing Portballintrae/Giant’s Causeway Path to the Causeway Hotel and New Visitor Centre.

However, a meeting of Moyle Council heard there was an objection from the Giant’s Causeway Community Association who considered the path would have a visual impact on the area and believe the path could also have an effect on parking in the area around Runkerry Road.

A planning officer said the path will probably bring benefits to the area.
