Planning approval for haulage firm

Planning Service has recommended approval of an application from Woodside Haulage Holdings for an extension to its existing distribution warehouse at Carrickfergus Road, Ballynure.

Details of the plan were presented to councillors at their monthly Planning and Consultation Committee meeting on Monday evening (September 9).

Alderman Paul Girvan said that given the concerns over the future of the local haulage industry it was “good to see that Woodsides seem to be doing alright”.
