Dungannon and South Tyrone Area Plan 2010
Galbally is located approximately 10 kilometres northwest of Dungannon (see Map No. 85). The settlement comprises two clusters of development. The western cluster on Lurgylea Road comprises several dwellings and a football club and playing fields. The eastern portion is focused around the junction of Lurgylea Road, Gortindarragh Road and Dernanaught Road and contains dwellings and a small number of local facilities.
A settlement limit is designated around the two development clusters to provide a visual break between them, reflecting the rural character of the area, and to prevent coalescence of the clusters.
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.
