The site is that of a former weaving factory, with all former industrial buildings demolished, leaving a large area of hardstanding. The site is secured by a 2m high metal fence and is currently accessed off the A21 Comber Road.
The immediate vicinity comprises a healthy mix of residential, commercial, retail, leisure, food and beverage uses. Notable occupiers in the immediate vicinity include Tesco Extra, Matalan, Home Bargains and Burger King (all located within the nearby Castlebawn Retail Park). The established business area of Scrabo Business Park and Jubilee Road is located opposite, occupiers include Lidl, Murdock Building Merchants and Hughes Insurance. Ards Shopping Centre is also located nearby. Newtownards Airfield abutts the eastern boundary of the lands.
The strategic location and setting of the lands offer an excellent opportunity to develop a high quality mixed use scheme.
