ONE of the north's largest house building firms, Hagan Homes, says a new £1m project in Lisburn has created 25 construction jobs.

Building of the six three-bedroom semi-detached homes on the Wallace Gate site started in September 2019.

The Ballyclare-based firm will complete the first homes by February 2020, with the overall development scheduled to be handed over by July 2020. House prices will start from £170,000.

Meanwhile Banbridge-based property group Lotus Homes has notified Antrim and Newtownabbey Borough Council of its plans to build 90 houses in Antrim.

A pre-planning notice was lodged with the council on Wednesday. The bid includes 90 dwellings with detached garages.

The proposal would effectively double the size of the Co Down group's existing development next to the Holiday Inn Express hotel on the Ballymena Road in the town.

Commenting on the Lisburn development, Jim Burke, director of sales and Acquisitions at Hagan Homes said: “The demand for superior homes in Northern Ireland, which offer value for money, remains extremely high.

“Hagan Homes build affordable, quality, stylish homes and we are renowned for our attention to detail and the emphasis we place on the finer details both internally and externally.”

Hagan Homes' main contractor for the Wallace Gate development is MCA Building and Joinery Contractors.
