Dungannon and South Tyrone Area Plan 2010
Introduction: Plan Objectives

The main objectives of the Plan are:
  • the maintenance and enhancement of Dungannon and South Tyrone Borough and its distinctive urban and rural environs as an attractive and pleasant place to live, work and visit;
  • the integration of land use and transportation to reduce congestion and the need for car journeys and encourage a shift to more sustainable modes of transport, including walking and cycling;
  • the promotion of development within existing settlements which benefit from ease of access to an appropriate range of services and community facilities and maximise use of existing infrastructure;
  • the maintenance of compact settlement forms that respect the individual character and identity of settlements, avoid urban sprawl and unnecessary ribboning and reduce the need for expansion into countryside;
  • the provision of development opportunities to meet housing and employment needs within a quality and sustainable living and working environment;
  • the protection and enhancement of landscape features, natural habitats, and man-made features which are of conservation importance and contribute to the overall character of individual settlements and the wider countryside;
  • the consolidation of the network of open space, cycleways and walkways; and
  • the promotion of opportunities for sustainable leisure and tourism development.
