Traditionally, industry in Dungannon developed to the south of the town centre where factories and warehousing could benefit from easy access to the railway network. With the disappearance of both the linen industry and railways, the area suffered a general decline and the focus for new industrial development moved to Granville and Killyman Road to the southwest and southeast of the town.
The southern side of Dungannon retains a strong attraction for industrial expansion, benefiting from relatively flat land with easy access to the primary road network. Granville provides the major focus for industrial development with additional land identified at Killyman Road to the southeast of the town. To the north, additional land designated at the A45 Coalisland Road with further potential designated to the west of the town at Ballygawley Road. The distribution of additional zoned industrial land and the protection of existing industrial areas within Dungannon provides a choice of locations and in some instances employment within walking distance.

Industry and Business Zonings

75 hectares of land are zoned for industrial and business use (see Plan Policy IND 1). The key site requirements for each of these zonings are as follows:
DI 01Land at Granville Industrial Estate
This 40 hectare site forms an extension to the existing Granville Road Industrial Estate southwest of the town. The site is shown on the Granville settlement Map No. 86. Approximately 14 hectares of the zoning already has planning permission and has been graded and landscaped. An additional 26 hectares is zoned to the north and south of the approved site. The site's location adjacent to the strategic transportation network, the existing uses and available infrastructure makes the area suitable for additional industrial development.
A comprehensive design scheme for the site encompassing the additional zoning will be required which takes into account the following key site requirements:
  • vehicular access should be from the A45 Granville Road either via the existing industrial estate or via Eskragh Road;
  • upgrading of the A4/A45 Grranville Road junction should be provided to eliminate right turn movements both entering and leaving the A4 Road;
  • an additional access at the A4/C646 Killyliss Road junction may be permitted provided the junction layout permits overtaking opportunities to be maximised;
  • 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;
  • extensive landscaping and buffer planting of indigenous species should be provided to the road frontages and site boundaries; particular attention should be paid to the northern boundary which lies close to Eskragh Lough, the boundary to Black Lough and the boundary to the A4;
  • the sloping nature of the southwestern part of the site will require careful attention to matters relating to grading, layout, siting, design and landscaping;
  • a detailed wildlife survey will be required on the north western boundary to include Black Lough and measures should be taken to mitigate any identified impacts on the nature conservation interests of the area - the potential to integrate Black Lough within the overall landscape should be investigated;
  • upgrading of water supply may be required; and
  • foul sewer pumping and upgrading of the network will be required.
DI 02 Land at Coolhill, south of Moy Park, Killyman Road
This 15.5 hectare site is located adjacent to an existing industrial area to the southeast of Dungannon. The gently undulating nature of the site together with good road communications make it suitable for a range of industrial and business uses.
A comprehensive design scheme for this site will be required which takes into account the following key site requirements:
  • vehicular access should be from Far Circular Road and/or Killyman Road;
  • pedestrian access should be provided through the site to link Far Circular Road with Killyman Road and housing zoning DH 11 and DH 12;
  • 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;
  • a landscaping buffer of at least 10 metres using indigenous species should be provided to the rear of the residential properties along Killyman Road;
  • extensive landscaping and buffer planting of indigenous species should be provided to remaining road frontages and site boundaries;
  • marginal flooding may occur adjacent to the open watercourse, which flows close to the southeastern site boundary;
  • subject to obtaining adequate access, the open watercourse and associated vegetation along the southeastern boundary should be retained and incorporated within the overall layout;
  • foul sewer pumping may be required; and
  • some regrading of the site may be required towards the centre of the site.
DI 03 Land at Far Circular Road
This 7.0 hectare site is located off Far Circular Road and together with DI 02 forms a significant cluster of zoned industrial land to the southeast of the town. The site is relatively flat along its northern boundary but rises gradually toward the former railway line along its southern boundary.
A comprehensive design scheme for this site will be required which takes into account the following key site requirements:
  • vehicular access should be from Far Circular Road and/or Killyman Road;
  • 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;
  • extensive landscaping and buffer planting of indigenous species will be required along the eastern boundary, the public road frontage and to the residential property along the eastern boundary;
  • the former railway line and associated vegetation should be retained and augmented as necessary; and
  • foul sewer pumping may be required
DI 04 Land adjacent to Tyrone Crystal,Coalisland Road
This 4.9 hectare site is located to the north of the town adjacent to the Tyrone Crystal factory and represents a consolidation of the existing industry in the area. There are steep slopes to the eastern and southern boundaries of the site but much of the remainder is relatively flat.
Development of this site should take account of the following key site requirements:
  • vehicular access should be from the A45 Coalisland Road via the existing access road;
  • building should be set back from the steeply sloping land on the eastern and southern boundaries and buffer planting of indigenous species provided on these slopes; and
  • extensive landscaping and buffer planting of indigenous species should be provided to the public road frontages and the site boundaries.
DI 05 Land at Ballygawley Road
This 7.5 hectare site is located to the west of the town and is largely surrounded by existing urban uses. It is a flat and marshy site and enjoys existing access onto the Ballygawley Road.
A comprehensive design scheme for this site will be required which takes into account the following key site requirements:
  • vehicular access should be from the A45 Coalisland Road via the existing access road;
  • development should be set back from the residential properties at Ballysaggart Park and 'Cloneen' and a landscaping buffer of at least 10 metres using idigenous species should be provided;
  • extensive landscaping and buffer planting of indigenous species should be provided to remaining public road frontages and site boundaries.
  • pedestrian access should be provided through the site to link Ballygawley Road with Lisnahull Road and Ballysaggart Park;
  • foul sewer pumping may be required;
  • subject to obtaining adequate access, the open watercourse in the southeastern portion of the site should be retained and incorporated within the overall layout; and
  • the low-lying nature of the site will require careful attention to matters relating to development levels and infilling may be required.
