Vacant ground, Dundonald
Vacant ground, Dundonald
A tract of vacant ground between here J4272 : The Belfast Road, Dundonald and the Millmount Road J4272 : The Millmount Road, Dundonald (1) (background). There was a plan, perhaps 25 or so years ago, to abandon the “green belt” concept and allow the creation of what would have amounted to a new town between Dundonald and Comber. This is now part of the line reserved for road widening for the Millmount Village development - see J4272 : Road widening, Dundonald (March 2014).
Millmount Village, Dundonald
A housing scheme, beside the Comber Road, Dundonald, stalled by insolvency during the recession. The site has been sold to another developer who describes it as “Millmount Village consists of a new village being developed on the outskirts of Belfast which will eventually provide up to 1,000 homes. The development will provide a range of housing from apartments, townhouses to detached units with close proximity to nearby retail and leisure facilities and strong transport links to the city centre. . . . This scheme is one of the largest developments currently under construction in Northern Ireland and our involvement in the scheme demonstrates the confidence in Lagan Homes to deliver on large and complex schemes whilst maximising value recovery on previously ‘distressed’ schemes.”
