Dungannon and South Tyrone Area Plan 2010
Brockagh/Mountjoy is located close to the western shores of Lough Neagh, approximately 7 kilometres east of Coalisland (see Map No. 70). The settlement is mostly comprised of single dwellings and farm buildings, although some in-depth development has recently taken place to the north of Mountjoy Road and to the west of Ballybeg Road.
Land adjacent to the Duckingstool River may be subject to flooding.
Single dwellings of an appropriate design will normally be acceptable on suitable sites within the settlement limit provided the proposal does not prejudice the comprehensive development of adjacent land. Housing development will normally be permitted provided the scale, layout and detailed design of the development are compatible with the scale and character of the settlement. Accordingly, residential developments in excess of five units will not normally be permitted.
In order to reinforce local identity, all residential proposals should be guided and informed by the traditional rural built forms in the locality. Housing developments should reflect the essentially informal rural character of the settlement and not lead either individually or cumulatively to large scale suburban estate type layouts. The use of designs and materials unrelated to the surrounding rural locality will not be acceptable.
