Choice housing announce £20m new homes investment in Carrickfergus

Choice Housing has announced plans to deliver 146 new homes in Carrickfergus. The scheme is accessed off Minorca Drive and was home to the former Courtaulds textiles factory site in town. The development will also provide a public open space, landscaping and a children’s play area and is expected to be completed by March 2025. 

The project will include a mix of accommodation to meet the growing and diverse needs of local residents. This will include a range of 2-,3- and 4-bedroom houses with a number of these properties to be wheelchair accessible.  Choice Group Chief Executive, Michael McDonnell said, “…this latest investment of £20m further demonstrates our commitment to addressing the growing need for quality affordable housing in Carrickfergus.”

Choice is working in partnership with local South Down Developer McGreevy Construction Ltd to deliver the design and build. Sean McGreevy from McGreevy Construction added, “This is a significant housing project for the Carrickfergus area which, following consultation with the local community, will be a welcome addition.”
