Dunluce Castle

Dunluce Castle Tourist Visitors Centre involves the provision of a new visitors centre adjacent to the castle.

Pragma were instructed after the project had been in the planning system for several years and had become stagnated. We in association with Carson McDowell Solicitors injected new life into the project, following a fundamental review of the issues, which were obviously heritage, archaeology, visual impact and planning policy related. In addition there was competition from a rival scheme some distance away that was being promoted by NIEA. The forensic review of the project necessitated some alterations to the scheme but resulted in a planning permission being granted at Planning Appeal for the same floorspace as had originally been sought. The scheme is progressing to reserved matters at present.
