Dungannon and South Tyrone Area Plan 2010
Settlements: Dungannon Housing (Page 1 of 5)

Housing Zonings

Over the Plan period, the largest demand for development land will come from the housing market. The Plan zones 109 hectares of land as Phase 1 housing land in Dungannon town. 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 148 hectares of land as Phase 2 housing land in Dungannon town. This land will be held in reserve and its development will not be permitted in the short term. 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

109 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:
DH 01 Land between Quarry Lane and Donaghmore Road
This 6.2 hectare site is relatively low-lying, but rises towards its southern boundary. Development Opportunity Sites lie to the southeast of the site (see Plan designations DOS 04 and 05), with an existing private nursing home and vacant land located to the northwest and residential development along the other boundaries.
Key site requirements:
  • vehicular access should be from Quarry Lane and the designated Development Opportunity Site (see DOS 05);
  • pedestrian access should be provided from the site to the existing laneway at the western corner of the site and the Development Opportunity Site (see DOS 05). Pedestrian access should also be provided from the site to Donaghmore Road;
  • foul sewer pumping may be required;
  • 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 particular care should be exercised in the treatment of the northwestern and southeastern boundaries;
  • the layout should be designed to ensure that houses front onto Quarry Lane; and
  • child's play provision should be provided and incorporated within the overall design.

Key site requirements:
  • vehicular access should be provided from the A29 Cookstown Road;
  • pedestrian access should be provided to link into the existing pathway that runs south and west of Knockmore Drive; 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.

  • foul sewer pumping may be required;
  • 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 Mullaghadun Lane.
DH 06 Land south of Glenree Avenue

  • 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 layout should be designed to ensure that houses front onto Killymeal Road, Lurgaboy Lane and Mullaghadun Lane; and
