Welcome news for the Ballymoney and the Stranocum area.
Gracehill House just outside Ballymoney is set to see major expansion in the near future.
According to councillor Darryl Wilson, this expansion could see the possible creation of up to 100 jobs and proposals are being developed at present by the estate’s owners, ESC.
The Belfast based company has plans to transform the estate and adjoining house/golf course into a destination resort similar in style to Galgorm in Ballymena.
The Deputy Mayor of Causeway Coast and Glens added: “We have barely tapped into the massive tourist potential of our local area, this development will go some way towards enhancing the experience of visiting the Causeway Coast and Glens.”
