The site is situated just outside Larne, the second largest seaport in Northern Ireland, which is situated in the northeastern region of the
Mid & East Antrim Borough coastline. Larne was the third-largest town in the Borough in terms of population at the time of the 2011
Census, after Ballymena and Carrickfergus. The A8 highway links Belfast with Larne. With the large level of traffic using the Port of
Larne passenger and freight ferry services to Scotland, this essential road in Northern Ireland currently transports more than 17,000 cars
daily. The location is situated on the A2’s Bank Road, which leaves Larne and leads to Carrickfergus.
