Planning Service has granted approval of an application for the construction of more than 40 new homes near Mossley Mill.
At their monthly Planning and Consultation Committee meeting, local councillors were informed that there were no objections to the plan to build 44 residential dwellings on a site incorporating lands and property at 570 Doagh Road and 50 Carnmoney Road North.
The site is currently occupied by a disused commercial/warehouse unit.
Meanwhile, planners have also recommended approval of an application by Christie Waste Ltd for a waste transfer facility at Central Park, Mallusk.
The facility will store, sort, treat and bale inert and non-hazardous waste for onward transfer.
Council committee members were informed that there was one letter of objection to the plan.
They passed the approval recommendation without debate.
