Dungannon has a number of local parks, which 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.

Open Space Zoning

DR 01 Land at Castle Hill
This 0.6 hectare site is located to the north of the main shopping area on Castle Hill. The Borough Council propose to develop the site for use as a town park. The park will primarily be used for passive recreation and children's play, but could also provide a focal point for community events within the town centre. The Borough Council also proposes to reuse the Bank building at 26 Market Square for community/civic use and link this to the park. There is potential to provide pedestrian links between the park and the leisure centre at Circular Road. This site is shown on Dungannon Town Centre Map No. 61 b.

Community Woodlands

DCW 01 Land at Dunlea Vale
This 1.7 hectare site is located to the north of the town next to Oaks Park (see Map No. 61 a). The proposal is to plant this area as a community woodland that can then be used for passive recreational purposes for the inhabitants of the town.
DCW 02 Land at Roskeen Road, Moygashel
This 0.8 hectare site in Moygashel borders existing housing and is located at the town's development limit (see Map No. 61a). The planting of a community woodland will not only offer opportunities for passive recreational activities for local residents but will also act as a visual buffer between this part of the town and the open countryside.
