Farm dwelling turned down
Plans for a new farm dwelling south of The Clachan Aird on Causeway Road in Bushmills have been turned down.
The applicant David McAfee proposed to build a new farm dwelling and garage.
There were ten letters of objection against the scheme and Planners refused it on the grounds that it would not “visually integrate into the surrounding landscape”.
They also said that it would result in a suburban style build-up of development and would “adversely affect the intrinsic environmental nature and character” of the area.
