CAUSEWAY Coast and Glens Council has suffered a setback in its bid to convert an old lifeboat station into a restaurant.

The scheme, aimed at generating income from the redundant building at Portandhu in Portrush, is currently the subject of a planning application.

However, the consultation process has thrown up an objection from Marine and Fisheries officials in Stormont's Department of Agriculture Environment and Rural Affairs.

The Marine Division said it did not consider the scheme appropriate and would not be prepared to support installation of coastal protection measures if the restaurant plan goes ahead.
