Whitehead Northern Ireland

www.whitehead-ni.comWhitehead is a pretty seaside village on the east coast of County Antrim, Northern Ireland and is fairly self sufficient in terms of businesses and services for daily needs, including shops, schools churches and recreation.

It lies almost midway between the bustling town of Carrickfergus with its mediaeval castle and historic harbour and the busy port of Larne. Located at the base of Muldersleigh Hill, at the entrance to Belfast Lough, on the Irish Sea, it lies in a small bay between the limestone cliffs of Whitehead and the black volcanic cliff of Blackhead, with the Blackhead lighthouse on top, marking the entrance to Belfast Lough.

A Victorian Railway village with a well preserved Conservation area, including the Railway Station, Whitehead contains about 1800 households with over 4,000 people and is home to RPSI and CAYC (Railway Preservation Society of Ireland and the County Antrim Yacht Club), as well as being the starting point for the popular seaside walk past Sunshine House and around Blackhead Lighthouse.

Whitehead is about 20 miles from Belfast. On the opposite coast of Belfast Lough, to Whitehead, the Copeland Islands, Bangor and part of the County Down coastline, are clearly visible. On a clear day, it is possible to see the Isle of Man and Scotland.

Community Consultation Redevelop Community Centre Frontage

www.whitehead-ni.com

“COASTAL COMMUNITIES FUND”

WHITEHEAD COMMUNITY CENTRE

COMMUNITY CONSULTATION

Overview

As part of the continued improvement programme for the regeneration of the East Antrim Coastline and in particular the regeneration of our town, Whitehead Community Association intend to apply for funding from the Coastal Communities Fund to help redevelop part of King’s Road from Balmoral Avenue to the Whitehaven Respite Centre.

The intention will be to refurbish the shop frontage, produce a Whitehead central hub for information and tourism, redevelop the retail units, increase the opportunity for start-up and small businesses and re-landscape the shopfront to roadway pedestrian area.

The project will significantly improve the centre of Whitehead and at the same time maintain its historic and cultural heritage. (Traditional cinema doors)

As well as Whitehead regeneration, the project will also provide the town with economic growth and sustainable job creation for our local community.

Although this is by no means a “done deal”, the Community Association will be applying to Mid & East Antrim Council for Planning Permission by the end of January, before lodging an Application for funding.

The overall project is intended to attract an increased footfall to Whitehead, and allow the further enhancement of ongoing local projects (“The Blackhead Path”, The Railway Preservation Society, The Gobbins etc).

Community Acceptance

Before embarking on such a major project for our town, it is important that the community of Whitehead is engaged and behind the application.

To this end, we would like to provide you with relevant information, and intend to hold information evenings, display updates around the town and also get input from the community on potential interest in start-up ventures or small business that could complement the programme.

Community Questionnaire

A small questionnaire is attached, which, when returned, will help guide with the decision making on the project.

A positive response will add significant weight to the Funding Application.
