Ballymena is a large town in County Antrim and has a population of 29,467 in the 2011 census. The town lies approximately 27 miles north of Belfast and 50 miles east of Londonderry. The town benefits from excellent road infrastructure being situated on the M2 which links north Belfast to Antrim, and forms most of the main route from Belfast City to Belfast International, whilst the Northern section where the site is located acts as a bypass of Ballymena. The property is located 2 miles east of Ballymena Town Centre, at the junction of the Larne Road Roundabout. The surrounding area is predominantly industrial as the site is also located adjacent to Pennybridge Industrial Estate with neighbouring occupiers including JP Corry, Scewfix, Ballymena Honda, Curtis Peugeot and Curtis Toyota.
The site benefits from planning permission for erection of a 60 bed quality budget hotel and restaurant, a park and share facility, petrol filling station and associated shop, HGV parking and associated car parking, landscaping, site and access works. Ref G/2012/0515/F.
