Dungannon and South Tyrone Area Plan 2010
Carnteel is located approximately 14 kilometres southwest of Dungannon, close to the B35 Dungannon to Aughnacloy Road (see Map No. 74). The village has considerable character, due to its hilltop location and the ruins of the historic church. The settlement is focused around the crossroads at its centre and has developed in linear form to the north and south. It is comprised mainly of dwellings with a large agricultural machinery business to the north. Local facilities are limited to a shop and post office.
The lack of sewerage facilities is an overriding constraint on growth and planning permission will not normally be granted unless a satisfactory means of sewage disposal can be effected
A Local Landscape Policy Area is designated on the western hill slopes to help protect the hilltop setting when viewed from the west.
An Area of Archaeological Potential is designated in the village centre. Within this area, developers will normally be expected to submit an archaeological assessment or evaluation in association with planning applications.
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.
