April 11, 2018

Chairman of Lisburn and Castlereagh City Council’s Planning Committee, Councillor Luke Poots, said that the Committee was delighted to approve a planning application for a new Aparthotel  for Lisburn city centre.

“I welcome the decision to approve this application and I recognise that a considerable amount of work and effort has been undertaken to achieve this positive result.

“The provision of additional bed spaces will open up exciting opportunities for our City Centre, attracting overnight visitors and additional spend in our Council area and is an example of how planning  decisions taken at a local level can have a real benefit to local businesses and residents.

“I am particularly pleased that this scheme will also include self-catering apartments attached to it making it attractive for contractors to stay in our city whilst working on local projects.  I also welcome the applicant’s willingness to undertake road improvements as this is something that is much needed and I know the general public will appreciate.

“This new development will bring new jobs and new opportunities, both directly and indirectly, for many supporting industries and we welcome the developers decision to invest here in Lisburn.” said Councillor Poots.
