Antrim and Newtownabbey Borough Council has held its first virtual Planning Committee following the Covid-19 outbreak. The Council’s Planning Committee plays a key and vital role in facilitating significant 
investment decisions across the Borough as well as being a driver for economic growth. 

During the meeting, the Planning Committee granted planning permission to Lotus Homes, for a major new residential development at Ballymena Road, Antrim comprising 90 units incorporating a mix of 19 detached dwellings, 66 semi-detached dwellings and five townhouses. 

Following the decision, Committee Chairman, Alderman Philip Brett commented

“I am delighted that approval has been granted for a further phase of the new residential development being built at Ferrard Meadow. Antrim remains a much sought after location with a high demand for housing and it is great to offer more options for future residents. The scheme represents an investment of some £14 million by the developer and will help assist economic recovery by providing almost 50 jobs during construction.” 

He added “The application was processed in under four months and demonstrates the Council’s continued commitment to work positively with the construction industry despite COVID-19 and to process major applications speedily, something I would like to congratulate our Planning team on.”
