Ards and North Down Borough Council is progressing ambitious plans to redevelop a 2-mile stretch of the seafront over the next 10 years, to help re-establish Bangor as a thriving city and prime visitor attraction in Northern Ireland.
The Bangor Waterfront Redevelopment is just one of a number of exciting tourism-led regeneration schemes that was eligible to receive funding from the Belfast Region City Deal. Ards and North Down Borough Council has been awarded £40M for the 10-year development via a bespoke package of funding from the Department of Communities, with £20m secured from Council and an additional investment of £12.8m being sought from private investment.
A series of Information Sessions have taken place to keep Bangor residents, businesses and partners updated on the project, the key stages and the timelines of the Bangor Waterfront Redevelopment.
Hosted by Council Officers, these sessions presented information on the overall project, focussing on specific areas along the 2-mile route as well as answering questions and dispelling any myths that surround the development.
The first meeting was held on Tuesday 25 July 7pm- 9pm for Ballyholme Residents at St Columbanus Parish Church Hall, Ballyholme. Following this, a Bangor-wide session was held on Tuesday 29 August 7-9pm in SPACE and again on Tuesday 10 October 7-9pm also in SPACE, Castle Park Road.
These sessions were held to ensure as many Bangor residents and businesses as possible were informed, and gave everyone an opportunity to attend meetings, learn more about the redevelopment and ask their questions.
These sessions are just the beginning of a long process of communications and engagement to be rolled out over the next few years which will involve all Bangor residents, businesses, and stakeholders.

The vision (Bangor Identity Framework document) is to seamlessly connect the waterfront to the rest of the city and, in so doing, provide a unique range of opportunities for residents and visitors to have their lives and businesses enriched by a mix of public spaces, creative events, activities, attractions and experiences that speak of local stories to a global audience.
In August 2019 the Council appointed a consultant to lead on the delivery of this project and to deliver on this vision. Working with the Council, the consultant undertook a significant amount of work to really understand the qualities that make Bangor special and local people’s hopes for the future of the waterfront.
