Craigavon Area Plan 2010
Settlement Proposals: Ballynabragget
Ballynabragget is located to the southeast of the Borough and straddles the Banbridge Road, a protected route (A26) (see Map No. 15). Donaghcloney Presbyterian Church is a significant landmark feature, marking the entrance to Ballynabragget from the east. Scope for further development in the settlement is very limited. There is some scope for development along Moygannon Road to the east.
The capacity of the Waringstown sewage treatment works, which serves Ballynabragget, is a constraint to development in the settlement. The proposed upgrade works at Waringstown are currently on site with an expected completion date of October 2004.
Single dwelling units of an appropriate design will normally be permitted on suitable sites within the settlement limit, provided the proposal does not prejudice the comprehensive development of adjacent land. Housing development will normally be permitted, provided the scale, layout and detailed design of the development are compatible with the scale and character of the settlement. However, housing development proposals may be subject to phasing in accordance with the implementation of the sewage treatment works upgrading timetable.
Development proposals for land within the settlement limit will be assessed in accordance with Plan Policy SETT 1 and other relevant policies contained within the Plan.
Development proposals for land identified as Phase 2 development land will be assessed in accordance with Plan Policy SETT 2.
A Local Landscape Policy Area (LLPA) is designated to the east of Ballynabragget. The stand of mixed woodland at Moygannon Road defines the entrance to Ballynabragget and is important in both visual and landscape terms. The LLPA is designated to protect this important tree group and the significant visual amenity it provides.
