Larne Area Plan 2010
Located at the northern end of the Islandmagee peninsula Browns Bay is an attractive area consisting of a small bay with a good sandy beach, some residential properties and tourist related facilities. It is proposed to upgrade the existing facilities by providing a boating slipway and parking.
The Department has defined a development limit in order to protect the quality of the existing environment.
Within this limit opportunities exist for the development of one or two appropriately designed single dwellings.
Archaeological remains may exist within the development limit associated with the earlier occupation of this area. (See Settlement Plan)
Developers should consult with the Department at the earliest opportunity to allow evaluation of the archaeology of the site. This will enable the formulation of a strategy to record the artefacts and the preparation of a programme of excavation if necessary.
