Phase 2 Housing

Approximately 148 hectares of land are zoned for Phase 2 housing land (see Plan Policy HOUS 1). The key site requirements for each of these housing zonings are as follows:
DH 26 Land at Glenadush townland
This 10.8 hectare site is located between Old Caulfield Road and Old Ballygawley Road to the west of Dungannon. The site rises towards its eastern boundary and a laneway traverses the northern portion of the site.

  • pedestrian access should be provided through the site to link Old Caulfield Road with Old Ballygawley 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 western boundary;
  • the layout should be designed to ensure that houses front onto Old Caulfield Road and Old Ballygawley road; and
  • child's play provision should be provided and incorporated within the overall design.
DH 27 Land at 'Mullaghconor Glebe'

  • 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 nothern and western boundaries and around Mullaghmore Lough;
  • the layout should be designed to ensure that houses front onto Aghareany Road; and
  • child's play provision should be provided and incorporated within the overall design.
DH 28 Land northwest of Drumglass High School
This 34 hectare site is located to the northwest of Dungannon. This is an undulating landscape and its western and northern boundary is for the most part defined by a disused railway route. The former railway route forms part of the proposed Peripheral Cycle Route (see Plan Policy TRAN 3).
Key Site requirements
  • vehicular access should be provided through housing zoning DH 24 from Mullaghmore Road;
  • the need for direct access from the development to the A29 Cookstown Road will be assessed in accordance with the Department's policy on protected routes as stated in Planning Policy Statement 3: Development Control - Roads Considerations;
