A large residential development of nearly 160 homes has been approved for the County Down seaside village of Millisle, on the outer Ards peninsula.

Ards and North Down Borough Council has confirmed to The Planner that it has agreed reserved matters for the proposals.

The scheme has a long and somewhat convoluted planning history partly because of uncertainty over the original outline permission, which dates back decades.

The site comprises two different areas within the settlement limit of the village separated by the existing Seaview Caravan Park, which has many mobile homes.

The scheme will see 122 houses (a mix of semi-detached and detached properties and townhouses) built on the waterfront location alongside 36 flats.
