Co. Antrim's Adelphi Portrush Hotel Refused Permission To Construct Three-Storey Extension

The Adelphi Portrush hotel of Portrush, Co. Antrim, has been refused planning permission for a three-storey extension.

According to The Belfast Telegraph, Northern Ireland infrastructure minister Nichola Mallon said that she has rejected the hotel's planning application because the proposed extension "would not be in keeping with the form and design of the listed [hotel] building and  would significantly harm its character and setting and the wider townscape of Portrush."

Mallon added, "In coming to my opinion, I am mindful of the economic importance of growing the tourism potential of Portrush, which can deliver both direct and indirect jobs, and I have sought to balance the need to facilitate this important industry locally, whilst ensuring the protection and environmental stewardship of the best of our built heritage."

"Disappointed"

Adelphi Portrush owner Mark Holmes told The Belfast Telegraph, "We are disappointed that our planned expansion which would have created an additional 20 jobs will be disallowed."

The proposed three-storey extension would have added another 18 bedrooms to the hotel.
