L/H 7 Land east of Antrim Road (11.93 hectares)
Key site requirements:
  • the results of a comprehensive survey, identifying trees, hedgerows and other vegetation to be retained and incorporated into the proposed development, shall be submitted with a planning application for full or outline permission;
  • a detailed planting plan for the proposed development shall be submitted with a planning application for full or outline permission. The existing vegetation within the site and on the boundaries shall be supplemented by the planting of trees and bushes of appropriate species to provide screening for the development and facilitate its integration into the landscape setting. The northern and eastern boundaries, in particular, shall be planted with appropriate species to ensure a definite natural boundary between the residential area and open countryside. A landscape bund shall be provided along the north western boundary to the railway line to assist in noise attenuation;
  • the layout of the proposal and the type of housing proposed should respect the topography of the site and careful consideration must be given to the relationship between future housing and the railway line which traverses the site;
  • development will be restricted to single storey on the north eastern portion nd on the crestline traversing the south western portion of the site;
  • part of the north eastern portion of the site shall remain open and undeveloped to provide the open space requirement to comply with the provisions of prevailing regional planning policy;
  • the layout shall be designed to ensure that no houses back onto Antrim Road;
  • a footway link to connect with the existing footway at the Antrim Road/ Old Kilmore Road junction will be required; this will include provision of pedestrian facilities at the railway level crossing. Third party land will be required to accommodate this;
  • the development to the east of the railway line shall be accessed through Belvedere to the south. Third party land may be required to accommodate this access. Appropriate access standards with regard to visibility splays andforward visibility should be provided;
  • the development to the west of the railway line shall be accessed onto Antrim Road through one access point located 40 metres southwest of the Antrim Road/North Circular Road junction. Third party land will be required to accommodate this access. Appropriate access standards with regard to visibility splays and forward visibility should be provided. Directaccess for individual dwellings will not be permitted onto Antrim Road; and
  • any development for more than 200 houses, or any phased development which would result in a housing potential for the site as a whole of more than 200 houses, will require a Traffic Impact Assessment.
The developer should note that pumping of foul sewage will be required for the western part of the site and that a water main extension is required to serve the site. Also, there are no existing public surface water sewers available to serve the site: surface water could be discharged to a watercourse located within the site, subject to consent. In addition, the developer should note that there is an existing foul sewer traversing the site. No building will be permitted over, or within 6 metres either side of, this sewer.
L/H 8 Land to the rear of Demesne Avenue (3.66 hectares)
Key site requirements:
  • the results of a comprehensive survey, identifying trees, hedgerows and other vegetation to be retained and incorporated into the proposed development, shall be submitted with a planning application for full or outline permission;
  • a detailed planting plan for the proposed development shall be submitted with a planning application for full or outline permission. The existing vegetation along the boundary of the site and the boundary of existing dwellings at Demesne Avenue and Churchill Avenue shall be retained, where possible, and supplemented by the planting of trees and bushes to provide screening for the development and break up the housing mass and reduce the visual impact of the development;
  • consideration should be given to retention of the existing stone wall which forms part of the northern boundary of the site and its incorporation into the proposed development; and
  • any access to the development from Demesne Avenue/Churchill Avenue for any more than approximately 5 further dwellings will require access improvements to the Avenue Road junction, consisting of the provision of a right turning lane (whilst maintaining the current visibility standard) and satisfactory footway link improvements, from the site to Avenue Road. Any access to the development from Demesne Avenue will require visibility improvements at the Demesne Avenue/Avenue Road junction and footway links. Third party land will be required to accommodate this access. The development can be accessed onto Avenue Road through Birchdale and Hazelgrove. However, access via Hazelgrove for more than 26 dwellings will require the provision of a right turning lane at the Avenue Road junction.
L/H 9 Land south of Avenue Road (14.76 hectares)
Key site requirements:
  • the results of a comprehensive survey, identifying trees, hedgerows and other vegetation to be retained and incorporated into the proposed development,shall be submitted with a planning application for full or outline permission;
  • a detailed planting plan for the proposed development shall be submitted with a planning application for full or outline permission. The existing vegetation within the site and on the boundaries shall be supplemented by the planting of trees and bushes of appropriate species to provide screening for the development and facilitate its integration into the landscape setting. The vegetation on the eastern boundary, in particular, should be supplemented with similar species to ensure a definite natural boundary between the residential area and open countryside;
  • consideration should be given to the retention of the existing farm buildings located in centre of the site and the laneway traversing the site and their incorporation into the proposed development;
  • any access to the development from Avenue Road will require a right turning lane. Third party land will be required to achieve access standards. Appropriate access standards with regard to visibility splays and forward visibility should be provided. Direct access for individual dwellings will not be permitted onto Avenue Road; and
  • any development for more than 200 houses, or any phased development which would result in a housing potential for the site as a whole of more than 200 houses, will require a Traffic Impact Assessment.
The developer should note that pumping of foul sewage may be required for the eastern part of the site. Also, surface water could be discharged to a watercourse located within the site, subject to consent. In addition, the developer should note that the low-lying part of a site may be subject to marginal flooding.
