Town Centre Masterplans

Ards and North Down Borough Council will be appointing Consultants in Autumn 2022 to undertake a review of each town/city Masterplan (Bangor, Comber, Donaghadee, Holywood and Newtownards). 

Each Masterplan which will be a non-statutory document, providing the framework for the promotion, implementation and timing of urban regeneration, recreation, tourism, and leisure initiatives.  

In order to shape the review of each Masterplan, the Council will deliver a series of informal drop-in sessions within each town/city prior to the Consultant’s engagement. 

The drop-in sessions invite members of the public to come along and engage with members of the Advisory Group and Council Officers. 

The sessions will inform: 

The Masterplan – What is it? What is its purpose? The process for reviewing the Masterplan. How to get involved. | Advisory Groups – Awareness and better understanding of the Advisory Groups – Who represents? What do they do? How does their input shape the future?  | Current & Future Developments – Increased awareness of current and future planned developments and how this will support/ feature/ link the masterplanning. 

We invite members of the public to join the conversation and Have Your Say on the future of your town/city. Details of each session are listed below:
