Permission for new apartments

Lisburn Councillor Jenny Palmer has welcomed the granting of planning permission for an apartment development in the Grand Street area of Lisburn.

This week the go-ahead was given for the development comprising two one-bedroom and two two-bedroom apartments.

“I welcome this approval but it has taken three and a half years to get this through,” said Mrs Palmer. “This area has housing stress and it’s a shame it took so long. This will be welcome news for those on the waiting list.”
