Investment and Regeneration in Pictures

We were awarded more than £5million for regeneration schemes in Antrim and Glengormley, following a successful bid to the Levelling Up Fund. We will be utilising £3 million of this funding to redevelop the former police station site into a new state of the art flagship building hosting 20,000 sq ft of modern flexible office/workspace for new start up and early growth businesses.

The first step in the regeneration projects was to redesign and improve the shopfronts along the block of units from Creative Tiles to the Movie House.  This work has now been completed.

Aligned with the office/workspace project, we worked closely with the Department for Infrastructure Roads Service to introduce of a right hand turning pocket at the junction of the Antrim Road and Glenwell Road, to help alleviate congestion in the area. A one-way system from Farmley Road to Glenwell Road is also proposed with a major upgrade to Farmley carpark and the adjacent road included within the scheme.

A significant public realm scheme will also be delivered from the former police station site through the town and finishing on the Antrim and Ballyclare roads just beyond the main section of shops. This will include new pavements, street furniture, lighting and increased public pedestrian space throughout the commercial centre of the town.

The public realm proposals will require the submission of a major planning application and as a result a dedicated pre-application community consultation will be undertaken locally at that time.
