A planning application designed to overhaul Bangor’s seafront has been published.
The £50 million makeover will include cafes, a beach, a seafront lawn and a hotel.
It is set to be carried out by Bangor Marine, a consortium of companies including the Karl Group and Farrans.
Aran Blackbourne, from Bangor Marine, said: “We are delighted to submit our exciting plans for the transformation of Queen’s Parade and Marine Gardens in Bangor.
“Submission of these plans follows a period of extensive and meaningful engagement with Ards and North Down Borough Council, the Department for Communities and, most importantly, the people of Bangor.
“We welcome the overwhelmingly positive feedback received during our far-reaching pre-application community consultation, and look forward to working with all project partners and statutory agencies to support a positive planning outcome.
“Bangor Marine is committed to progressing this application through to conclusion and hope to begin work on these exciting plans as soon as possible.”
