Antrim and Newtownabbey Borough Council Logo

Your Gateway to Europe

Antrim and Newtownabbey Borough is the industrial heartland of Northern Ireland offering exceptional property options for every type of business across all industry sectors.


Antrim and Newtownabbey Borough is located close to Belfast, Northern Ireland, where we have already developed an enviable reputation as a great place to invest and do business. Comprising 710sq. kilometres from the shores of Lough Neagh in the West to the shores of Belfast Lough in the East, our Borough occupies an important strategic position within Northern Ireland with the additional benefit of having the International Airport at the heart of our Borough and close proximity to the Ports and key motorways.

Antrim and Newtownabbey Borough offers exceptional property options for every type of business across all industry sectors. As well as having an abundance of high-quality office, retail and industrial space at prices that compete favourably with any city in Western Europe, we also offer dedicated pioneering centres for companies operating in the technology, science, and digital/creative industries.

Our digital infrastructure is excellent, alongside a quality yet affordable housing market and an efficient and well connected transport system.

Our Borough continues to thrive post pandemic owing to its key location for inward investment and regeneration, more recently since 2022 there has been investment of 986 million and we still have a range of strategic sites available for development. Antrim and Newtownabbey have much to offer investors, start-ups and businesses seeking expansion opportunities. Since the devolution of planning powers to local government in 2015 we have an established Planning Department which seeks to support business through the process to deliver real time outcomes that support our economy, local infrastructure and the lives of our residents.
