There was collective outrage at Moyle Council last night (Monday) when Planners gave nine reasons for refusing plans for the building of guest bedrooms at The Nook near the Giant’s Causeway.

The application was brought by Portnaboe Ltd for lands at The Nook at 48 Causeway Road in Bushmills.

The plans were for ten guest bedrooms in two new buildings contained within the curtilege of The Nook, however, Planners refused the application, giving nine different reasons for doing so.

There had been six letters of objection to the scheme but also one letter of support.

Councillors were unanimous in their criticism of the Planning department for refusing the application, saying that tourism and employment in the area needed to be supported.
