Dungannon and South Tyrone Area Plan 2010
Settlements: Coalisland Housing (Page 1 of 4)

Housing Zonings

Over the Plan period, the largest demand for development land will come from the housing market. The Plan zones approximately 80 hectares of land as Phase 1 housing land in Coalisland. In accordance with Plan Policy HOUS 1, favourable consideration will normally be given to the development of this land at any time over the Plan period.
The Plan also zones 41 hectares of land as Phase 2 housing land in Coalisland. This land will be held in reserve and its development in the short term will not be permitted. Release of this land will be subject to review in 2005.
The Department will require high standards of layout and design including public open space within all housing areas, in accordance with prevailing regional planning policy.

Phase 1 Housing

Approximately 80 hectares of land are zoned for Phase 1 housing land (see Plan Policy HOUS 1). The key site requirements for each of these housing zonings are as follows:
CH 01 Land southwest of Beechgrove House
Development has commenced on this 0.5 hectare site.
CH 02 Land north of Coalisland Community Golf Course
This 2.8 hectare site is located to the northwest of Coalisland and north of Coalisland Community Golf Course. The site slopes towards its western boundary.
Key site requirements:
  • vehicular access should be from Brackaville Road and should be located towards the northwestern corner;
  • a detailed survey of existing vegetation will be required. Based on the results of this survey, existing trees and hedgerows in good condition should normally be retained, protected and appropriately integrated into the overall design and layout. A full planting scheme, using indigenous species, should be prepared; and
  • the layout should be designed to ensure that houses front onto Brackaville Road.
CH 03 Land southeast of Shanoch, Mullaghmoyle Road
This 0.7 hectare site is located to the southeast of Shanoch, off the Mullaghmoyle Road and to the rear of Irwin's Row. It rises from the northwestern boundary to the southeastern boundary and is bounded by residential development on all sides.
Key site requirements:
  • vehicular access should be from Mullaghmoyle Road via Shanoch; and
  • a detailed survey of existing vegetation will be required. Based on the results of this survey, existing trees and hedgerows in good condition should normally be retained, protected and appropriately integrated into the overall design and layout. A full planting scheme, using indigenous species, should be prepared.
CH 04 Land southwest of St. Joseph's Secondary School
Development has commenced on this 1.7 hectare site.
CH 05 Land northwest of 'An Tearmann'
This 1.9 hectare site is located to the northwest of 'An Tearmann' and northeast of Brackaville Road. It is enclosed to the north by a steep embankment and the remainder of the site is relatively flat
Key site requirements:
  • vehicular access should be from Brackaville Road;
  • pedestrian access should be provided from the site to link to the former railway embankment;
  • a detailed survey of existing vegetation will be required. Based on the results of this survey, existing trees and hedgerows in good condition should normally be retained, protected and appropriately integrated into the overall design and layout. A full planting scheme, using indigenous species, should be prepared;
  • the sloping nature of the northwestern part of the site will require careful attention to matters relating to layout, siting, design and density; and
  • the layout should be designed to ensure that houses front onto Brackaville Road.
CH 06 Land north of Lisnastrane Heights, Stewartstown Road
This 2.7 hectare site is located to the north of Lisnastrane Heights, off the Stewartstown Road. It rises from its southwestern boundary to its northeastern boundary.
Key site requirements:
  • vehicular access should be from Stewartstown Road;
  • vehicular access should link through to housing zoning CH 24 to link Stewartstown Road with Mullaghmoyle Road;
  • pedestrian access should be provided through the site to link Stewartstown Road and Mullaghmoyle Road with Mousetown Road and housing zoning CH 24;
  • it is possible that a mineshaft may be located on or close to the northwestern boundary - further investigations will be required by the developer and measures taken as necessary to ensure that development does not sustain damage as a result of subsidence;
  • a detailed survey of existing vegetation will be required. Based on the results of this survey, existing trees and hedgerows in good condition should normally be retained, protected and appropriately integrated into the overall design and layout. A full planting scheme, using indigenous species, should be prepared;
  • the open watercourse and associated vegetation along the western boundary should be retained and incorporated into the overall layout;
  • the layout should be designed to ensure that houses front onto the Stewartstown Road; and
  • child's play provision, should be provided and incorporated within the overall design.
