Antrim Borough Council - Outdoor Recreation Consultation


Outdoor Recreation Northern Ireland have been asked by Antrim Borough Council to complete an Outdoor Recreation Action Plan for the Borough (please see attached for map of Antrim BC). The Action Plan will be used by the council to form the direction of outdoor recreation development over the next 6 years across the borough. We are undertaking extensive stakeholder liaison and public consultation, resulting in an inclusive and informed plan that will highlight the way forward for outdoor recreation within the Council area.

We would like to invite you to come to one of three consultation evenings (please see below) that are being held to fully include the views of all interested parties on outdoor recreation in Antrim BC. We would like to discuss with you current use of the borough for outdoor recreation from your perspective, plus any ideas or views you would have on future developments.

Outdoor Recreation activities and facilities that we would like to discuss include walking, cycling, horse riding, canoeing, fishing and mountain biking, as well as adventure activities such as archery, climbing, fell running, jet skiing, orienteering, sailing and waterskiing etc. Both formal and informal activity is included. Sports such as football, hockey etc are not included within this project.

There are three opportunities to have your say and to inform and shape the action plan:

17th June, The Old Courthouse, Antrim, 7.30pm-9pm (refreshments from 7pm)

19th June, Randalstown Central Primary School,Randalstown, 7.30pm-9pm (refreshments from 7pm)

25th June, Crumlin Community Centre, Crumlin, 7.30pm-9pm (refreshments from 7pm)


The evening will include a presentation then a workshop session to gather everyone’s input and ideas. This is a key opportunity to provide input to the direction of outdoor recreation development in the Antrim Borough Council area, we hope you are able to attend. If not, please feel free to get in touch directly or to forward any suggestions or views you may have on the subject. Please also feel free to forward on to anyone else you think may be interested.
