Ards and Down Area Plan 2015
Down District: Newcastle Industry

Employment within Newcastle is predominantly within the service sector, consequently the demand for industrial lands within the town has been very low.
The Down Area Plan 1982-1997 zoned areas of land for industry within Newcastle and some capacity remains within these areas. Lands zoned for industry under Proposal IND 3 in Volume 1 of the Plan comprise the residue of lands previously zoned and remaining undeveloped at the commencement of preparation of the Plan.
Applications for development within this area will be determined in accordance with prevailing regional planning policy.
Proposal NE 15 Lands adjacent to Mourne View Avenue
Key Design Considerations:
  • provision of a satisfactory access onto the existing industrial estate road; and
  • interim sewage disposal measures may be necessary until such time as the required upgrade to the Waste Water Treatment Works for Newcastle is complete and fully operational.
Proposal NE 16 Existing Industrial Lands
The following area of existing industrial lands is designated in accordance with Policy IND 1 in Volume 1 of the Plan and as indicated on Map No. 3/004a, Newcastle Settlement Map:
