A £14 million development of 90 dwellings close to Asda and The Junction shopping complex in Antrim will provide jobs for 50 construction workers, planners have been told.

Documents prepared for councillors on Antrim & Newtownabbey Borough Council in relation to a planning application say: ‘Information contained within the planning application indicates that this development proposal represents a circa £14 million pounds investment in the area,
will provide circa 50 jobs during the construction phase and during the operational
phase will generate £100,000 in rates annually.’

The recommendation from planners to councillors when the application is tabled at a meeting of the council in Mossley Mill on Monday June 15 is to approve the application.

The plans involved a ‘Proposed residential development of 90 dwellings (comprising 19 No detached, 66 No semi-detached and 5no townhouses), garages, sunrooms, landscaping, open space and all other associated site and access works.’

The location is on lands 80m south of Ferrard Meadows adjacent and north of 41-45 Castle Park; 25-30 Massereene Gardens and 32 Massereene Gardens and west of Ballymena Road, Antrim.
