New development approved for Lisburn
Plans for a new 120-home development on the Ballinderry Road in Lisburn have been approved by Lisburn & Castlereagh City Council’s planning committee.
The proposals for the Apex development were put forward to meet the growing need in the city for high-quality social and affordable housing for families, those with complex needs and the over-55s population.
The agreed mix of housing types is designed to reflect the community-focused nature of the new neighbourhood with a range of homes including 90 two- and three-bedroom dwellings; 6 complex needs bungalows; 8 two-person apartments with own door access and 9 three-person over-55s apartments. As part of the development, there will also be 7 two- and three-bedroom affordable homes.
Barry Kerr, Apex’s Director of Development, commented:
We’re delighted that our proposals to build 120 new homes on the Ballinderry Road have been approved. We’ve worked closely with the planning team in the council alongside local stakeholders to inform and guide the proposals through the consultation process and it’s great to see this hard work bear fruit.
During the consultation process, we reached out to gather the views of as many local residents and stakeholders as possible with hundreds of visits to the consultation website over the course of the pre-application community consultation process.
At Apex, we constantly strive to provide the best quality housing solutions throughout our proposals, and we believe we have achieved that with our approved plans for lands at Ballinderry. We look forward to starting construction in 2023, working to ensure these homes can be occupied as soon as possible.
