Craigavon Area Plan 2010
Settlement Proposals: Lurgan
The urban form of Lurgan is characterised by a linear shopping area with a radial road and development pattern emanating from this. Lurgan Park and lake and the adjacent golf course are significant assets to the town. These facilities are complemented by the recreational area at Silverwood. The primary land use, outside the commercial core, is housing, served by local schools, shops and other community facilities. Major industry is located at Silverwood and Annesborough. The Portadown Road is also an important industrial location. The town has good strategic communications links, being located on the Belfast-Dublin rail line and with easy access to the M1 Motorway.
