Help to navigate the planning system - Proposed Kinnegar to Donaghadee Route

In a scheme of the scale of the proposed greenway from Kinnegar to Donaghadee, numerous maps and plans are prepared and submitted to the Planning Service for assessment.

These documents are uploaded to the Northern Ireland Planning Portal for interested parties to view.

The former NI Planning Portal was shut down on Friday 18 November and a new Planning IT System launched on 5 December 2022.  This  is managed by the Department for Infrastructure, not the Council. For further information please refer to the Planning section of our website.  Planning: introduction of new Planning IT System - Monday 5th December 2022 | Ards and North Down Borough Council
