Craigavon Area Plan 2010
Settlement Proposals: Blackskull
Blackskull is situated to the southeast of the Borough, adjacent to Banbridge District (see Map No. 16). It lies in a valley within an attractive landscape setting of drumlin country. The settlement consists mainly of residential development and a church. The nature of the settlement, the surrounding topography and road and sewerage infrastructural constraints, have influenced the formulation of the settlement limit. There is limited scope for further development in Blackskull.
Single dwelling units of an appropriate design will normally be permitted 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.
Development proposals for land within the settlement limit will be assessed in accordance with Plan Policy SETT 1 and other relevant policies contained within the Plan.
Development proposals for land zoned as Phase 2 development land will be assessed in accordance with Plan Policy SETT 2.
