Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council is proposing to commence an improvement scheme on Portstewart Promenade.

The upgrade on the one of Borough’s top tourist areas, will include the replacement of all the seating, including those with memorial plaques attached.

Families who have memorial seats on the Proimenade should not that the plaques are to be transferred onto the new seating.

The proposed scheme is set to commence in September 2015. The improvements will also include resurfacing, replacement railings, lighting and the furniture along the sea front. A number of the families who purchased seats have been contacted, however some unfortunately have not as yet been traced. Council is appealing to families who have a memorial seat along Portstewart Promenade if they would please contact Mr Alan Jeffers at Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council to discuss the proposed arrangements.
