Your Glengormley

A regeneration programme with a range of projects in the centre of Glengormley, supported by funding from the Department for Communities, the Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities, and the Council. 


What will be happening?

By way of an overview the scheme has the following main components:

  1. Redevelopment of the former police station into an office/workspace hub
  2. Shopfront Scheme (Creatives Tiles to Movie House)
  3. Improving connectivity through Farmley carpark and private road with the potential for a one-way system
  4. New Right Hand Turning Lane into Glenwell Road
  5. Significant public realm scheme from the former police station site through the town and finishing on the Antrim and Ballyclare roads just beyond the main section of shops.

We recently 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.

We will be undertaking improvement works to the shopfronts along the block of units from Creative Tiles to the Movie House and are working with owners presently to agree the final design.

Aligned with the office/workspace project, we are working 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.
