Royal Portrush Golf Club
Clyde Shanks was appointed in 2017 to advise Royal Portrush Golf Club on a planning application strategy to secure further protection to its 5th green and 6th tee area. The existing coastal defence on the Whiterocks beach has been in place since 1983 and has helped to maintain the duneland and offset coastal erosion. We have co-ordinated input from engineers RPS, ecologists STRI and Ecology Solutions and submitted an Environmental Statement to Causeway Coast and Glens Council following a scoping with DEARA marine and Fisheries Division. A decision is anticipated in summer 2019.
