Larne Area Plan 2010
Glynn is located 3 kms south of Larne on the main A2 Larne to Carrickfergus Road and had a population of approximately 384 in 1991. The village currently serves as a dormitory settlement mainly for Larne. Its physical development is restricted by the surrounding topography, the river, the railway and the coast.
The Department proposes to include land at Lough View to the north west, and also to the south of the village. It is also proposed to include a small piece of land between Glenburn Road and Glynn River to allow for rounding off. (See Village Map.)
Potential for further development of the village within the current development limit is restricted by the shortage of available land.
Archaeological remains may exist within the environs of St John's Church. Developers should consult with the Department at the earliest opportunity to allow evaluation of any archaeological discoveries.
This will enable the formulation of a strategy to record the artefacts and the preparation of a programme of excavation if necessary.
During the Plan period it is proposed to replace the existing sewage works with a pumping station which will allow the transfer of sewage to Larne.
A by-pass scheme is proposed for the village during the Plan period.
This is listed as a road scheme.
