A co Down firm is set to build nearly 40 new homes in a £1.5m investment, seen as a further sign of revival in the sector.

Bangor-based Dunlop Homes is embarking on the job in Comber in the north of the county.

The family company has already completed and sold a number of homes in the Mill Village development in the town.

Now, £1.5m in funding from Danske Bank will go towards the next phase.

David Dunlop, managing director, said there had been big demand for the properties.

"Our houses in phase one have proved hugely popular, showing there is a demand for this type of new property in the north Down area," he added.

The news came as house-building figures showed nearly 1,000 new homes were registered here in the three months to the end of October.

David Croft, senior business manager at Danske Bank, said building was "steadily recovering after a number of difficult years".
