The site measures approximately 48 acres (19.42 Hectares). The land currently includes several buildings which were used as part of the former commercial use of the site as well as 2 residential dwellings. The lands are dissected by the A2 - Larne to Carrickfergus trunk road as well as the Northern Ireland Railways Larne to Belfast Line. The lands have extensive frontage on to Larne Lough c. 1 km in length.
The portion of the lands between the Railway Line and the Lough are generally flat and provide a good development platform. The western portion of the site rises gently from the A2 before rising steeply toward the Antrim Plateau. The escarpment is steep and heavily wooded but may be useful as amenity land and/
or leisure use.
The site had outline planning permission granted for a mixed use redevelopment of the site under planning ref F/2005/0315/O. The Larne Area Plan 2010 has the site zoned for a mixed use redevelopment under sections OS4, IND3 and IN3. The planning application was successful in revising the proportions of the areas zoned for different types of development from the criteria set out in the area plan. The residential proportion was increased to 60% from 35% and the industrial proportion was reduced from 55% to 30%. The leisure proportion remained the same and accounts for 10%.
