Moyle SDLP Councillor Dónal Cunningham has welcomed the plans announced for a substantial £750,000 investment at Glenariff Forest Park under the Forestry Fund.

Councillor Cunningham added: “This investment came after Moyle Council had developed a comprehensive and strategic proposal for the upgrade of forest based recreation and tourist facilities in the three major forests in the Moyle area namely Ballycastle, Ballypatrick and Glenariff.”

“The development of as high quality caravan and camping facility in Glenariff Forest Park will include 43 Caravan and Camper van site plus 9 Timber Tents is the first phase of a much bigger and more ambitious project which will play an important role in catering for and encouraging recreation and tourism within the Glens of Antrim.”

Councillor Cunningham continued

“Forest recreation and tourism promotes a better quality of life and improves people’s physical and mental health.  This development will provide a spur to the fragile rural economy and local community and will help regenerate Glenariff.”
