Plans for major retail development ‘would be good’ for southend of Cookstown
and live on Freeview channel 276
A planning application has been lodged with Mid Ulster District Council and more details of the development are expected to be revealed in the near future.
The site of the proposal is listed in the submission as the “existing car showroom and surface stock car park, now demolished” at Church Street, Cookstown.
It is anticipated that many jobs will be created if the development gets the go-ahead both during the construction phase and when it is completed.
Local Ulster Unionist Councillor Trevor Wilson said it looked to be an “exciting development” and would be good for the southend of Cookstown.
The applicant is Nigel McGurk, of TJ Hamilton/Mid-Ulster Cars, at Dungannon Road in the town, and the agent is Coalisland-based Clarman Partnership who will host an open day next month to outline the proposals.
