P/H 9 Land at Tandragee Road (0.93 hectares)
Key site requirements:
  • no development will be permitted in the flood pondage area; and
  • access to the site for a maximum of 50 dwellings will be permitted through the development to the north of the site.
P/H 10 Land at Tandragee Road (7.78 hectares)
Key site requirements:
  • no development will be permitted in the flood pondage area; and
  • direct access onto Tandragee Road will require extra land for access. Access standards including a right turning lane and footway links to The Fairways housing development's access along the Tandragee Road must be met. Access is also possible through The Fairways subject to access standards being provided.
P/H 11 Land to the rear of Springfields (off Gilford Road) (1.24 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 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. New planting is required along the western boundary, in particular, to ensure a definite natural boundary between the residential area and open countryside; and
  • any access to the development through Springfields or Levaghery will be limited to a private drive serving a maximum of 5 houses.
The developer should note that there is an existing foul sewer traversing this site. No building will be permitted over, or within 6 metres either side, of this sewer. Also, there are no existing surface water sewers available to serve the site: surface water could be discharged into a sheough forming the western boundary of the site, subject to consent. The developer should also note that a small part of this site may lie within the estimated Q100 year flood pondage area of the River Bann. Development involving the raising of land will not be permitted within the estimated Q100 year flood pondage area (defined as those areas lying below the 16m O.D. contour). Development proposals for the site should be accompanied by information on existing site levels.
P/H 12 Land southwest of Old Gilford Road (1.78 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 southwestern boundary, in particular, shall be supplemented with similar species to ensure a definite natural boundary between the residential area and open countryside;
  • the layout shall be designed to ensure that no houses back onto Old Gilford Road and;
  • the site shall be accessed onto Old Gilford Road. A right turning lane will be required and third party lands will be required to accommodate this access.

The developer should note that pumping of foul sewage will be required for the western part of the site. Also, there is an existing foul sewer traversing this site and a major trunk water main located just to the south of the site. No building will be permitted over, or within 6 metres either side of, this sewer and the area of the water main must be kept clear in order not to jeopardise future upgrading. There are no existing public surface water sewers available to serve the site: surface water could be discharged into a watercourse located within the site, subject to consent. The developer should also note that a small part of this site may lie within the estimated Q100 year flood pondage area of the River Bann. Development involving the raising of land will not be permitted within the estimated Q100 year flood pondage area (defined as those areas lying below the 16m O.D. contour). Development proposals for the site should be accompanied by information on existing site levels.
