Pending the signing of the Transfer Deed, Council will move to begin the process for Expressions of Interest in the site.
The Mayor of Mid and East Antrim has welcomed the progress made to date in the transfer of 40 acres of land formerly owned by Wrightbus to the people of Ballymena, with four major investors already signalling their interest in the site.

Council Chief Executive, Anne Donaghy, told elected members at this month’s Full Council meeting it was encouraging to see a variety of proposals from the potential investors covering the advanced manufacturing, renewables and education sectors.

At a Special Council meeting last month, members agreed to accept the sealing of the transfer of the land at Lisnafillan.

Pending the signing of the Transfer Deed, Council will move to begin the process for Expressions of Interest in the site.

Speaking following the meeting, the Mayor, Councillor Peter Johnston, said:

“These lands will be crucial in securing more jobs for our people and the growth of our economy in Mid and East Antrim.

“I am pleased to see the progress which has been made in the transfer process and it is very positive news that we have already shown by a number of potential investors.

“The transformation of the Lisnafillan lands will be a significant and historic boost to Mid and East Antrim’s long tradition of creating a sustainable economic future and landscape for all our citizens.”
