A GREYSTEEL Community group has issued a warning to Causeway Coast and Glens council that "under no circumstance" will they move from or close the local centre. The future of the valuable Greysteel Community Centre hangs in the balance as a decision by Council has been deferred to allow time to explore other options.
The rural community centre is the subject of a debate between the community and council as locals are adamant the centre will not be closing.

“The building is owned by Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council and before that Limavady Borough Council (LBC).
