Public urged to help shape local development across Borough

The next phase of Antrim and Newtownabbey Borough Council’s Local Development Plan starts on Friday 26 July 2019 as the formal 8-week public consultation period gets underway.

Aimed at giving everyone  an opportunity to have their say and help shape the new planning framework for the Borough to 2030, this stage includes a series of public information meetings and drop in sessions taking place across the Borough from 31 July 2019 and ending on 5 September 2019. Full details are available at: www.antrimandnewtownabbey.gov.uk/draftplanstrategy
These events have been designed to provide further information of the draft Plan Strategy which was published last month and for the public to raise any questions they may have.
Speaking ahead of the Public Consultation, Chair of the Planning Committee, Alderman Philip Brett, said “Planning decisions affect our housing, education, businesses, rural communities and our natural and historic environment and through the draft Plan Strategy we wish to positively and proactively guide development in the Borough so that we can meet the needs and improve the quality of life of all our residents.”
The 8 week period of public consultation and engagement will provide everyone with an opportunity to have their say on our proposals for the future of the Borough and I would encourage everyone to have their say and help shape future Council policies that will positively affect employment, infrastructure, housing and sustainable growth across the Borough for years to come.”
The draft Plan Strategy and accompanying documentation are available on the Council’s website and responses can be made via an online response form. Copies of the Strategy are also available to view at Antrim Civic Centre, Mossley Mill and in local libraries.
