Our Involvement

This proposal arose after it was recognised that the former Dunnes Stores building on site was unoccupied and had fallen into a state of disrepair.

The proposal includes two new retail units, offices, car parking, a service yard, a new access route to a parking area to the back of Queen Street, landscaping, two new pedestrian crossing points and general site works including the demolition of two existing buildings.

The development represents a significant investment of up to £6 million, creating 30 full and part-time jobs. It will significantly contribute to the regeneration of Coleraine Town Centre.

Issues Encountered

  • Amendments to design
  • Impact on Area of Townscape Character
  • Access, road safety and loss of car parking
  • Objection of retail competitors
  • Archaeology and Built Heritage
