Dungannon and South Tyrone Area Plan 2010
Settlements: Coalisland Recreation and Open Space

Coalisland has two important parks at Gortgonis and Brackaville. These facilities, together with other smaller open spaces, will be protected over the Plan period through the provisions of Planning Policy Statement 8 (PPS 8): Open Space, Sport and Outdoor Recreation. In addition, new public open space will be required on some housing zonings under the provisions of Planning Policy Statement 7 (PPS 7): Quality Residential Environments and PPS 8.

Community Woodlands

A community woodland is designated at the following location:
CCW 01 Land at Gortgonis
This 3.1 hectare site is located between the canal and the existing playing fields at Gorgonis. It is proposed to plant this area as a community woodland for passive recreational purposes and to encourage wildlife. It is important that access is allowed to the woodland from the Canal footpath, playing fields and adjacent land designated for housing.
