Council Calls for Development Proposals for Warrenpoint Baths
Newry, Mourne and Down District Council is seeking Expressions of Interests (EOI) for development proposals of Warrenpoint Baths.
The Baths site, on the shores of Carlingford Lough, is situated in one of the most picturesque locations, on a par with any in the Newry, Mourne and Down District Council area. While it’s physical appearance and condition have dramatically declined over the years, this has not dulled its appeal.
Newry, Mourne and Down District Council Chairperson, Councillor Charlie Casey said, “With the launch of an Expression of Interest for development proposals at Warrenpoint Baths, the Council plans to move forward with another exciting regeneration project. The site offers a prime location for development. I encourage interested parties to make a submission to the Expression of Interest process, which is available to view on the Council website.”
Cllr Charlie Casey continued, “The Council has secured planning permission for a mixed-use development on site and now wants to bring the opportunity to the marketplace and explore how an ambitious regeneration project for the location could be delivered.”
In 2013 the Council, through its South East Coast Masterplan, established various initiatives to progress regeneration in Warrenpoint and to date, several Public Realm Schemes along with the restoration of Warrenpoint Municipal Park, have been delivered. In January 2020, the most recent project was announced, seeking design consultants for the next phase of environmental improvement works along Warrenpoint’s front shore.
Commenting on the new EOI process, Warrenpoint, Burren and Rostrevor (WBR) Chamber of Commerce President, Mark Kelly said, “This is a landmark site for the people of Warrenpoint and South Down. WBR Chamber looks forward to continuing to work with the Council to help secure its long-term future development”.
