Settlement Proposals: Milltown (Co. Armagh)
Milltown is situated along the Maghery Road, approximately 9.5km northwest of Portadown, on the shores of Lough Neagh. The settlement comprises residential development, a church and a residential home that was formerly a hotel. There is a number of scattered dwellings and commercial operations to the north of the settlement, towards the end of Milltown Lane leading to Lough Neagh.
Single dwelling units of an appropriate design will normally be permitted on suitable sites within the settlement limit.
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 zoned as Phase 2 development land will be assessed in accordance with Plan Policy SETT 2.
A small area of land opposite Loughview Crescent is zoned for open space.
A Local Landscape Policy Area (LLPA) is designated on the Lough Neagh shore, to the east of Maghery. The LLPA comprises Ennismore House, a listed building built c.1830. A sundial within the grounds is also listed. A high stone wall defines the boundary to Maghery Road. The grounds have a range of mature trees, which together with a paddock, extend to the shoreline. The LLPA is designated to protect the surroundings of the listed building, protect the important tree groups and shoreline, and the significant landscape and visual amenity of the area. The LLPA is an important landscape and visually significant to the area.
The National Cycle Network passes through the settlement.
