Planning permission granted for slipway improvement

We are pleased to announce that planning permission has been granted to allow us to widen the slipway to improve health and safety and to make it more useable.

The existing slip which is only 5 m wide for its entire length has presented issues for club users and in attracting and running dinghy events since the land was reclaimed and the club located to the current site.

The proposals involve widening the slip along it's southern side towards the rear of the boat shed with the aim of achieving 10 m at the top and 15 m at the bottom.

Mid and East Antrim Borough Council have agreed to assist with funding the project and the Club will now proceed with further discussions with the Councils officers with regard to procurement and funding with a view to bringing a definite proposal to the membership for approval at either the AGM or if required a SGM as soon is practical to do so.
