Craigavon Area Plan 2010
Settlement Proposals: Derryadd
Derryadd is situated to the north of the Borough, on the shores of Lough Neagh (see Map No. 18). The settlement is essentially linear in form, fronting both sides of Ardmore Road. There are no community facilities in the settlement. The scope for further development in the settlement is limited by road infrastructural constraints.
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.
A 2.7 hectare site, located south of and fronting Derrytrasna Road, is zoned for Housing Phase 1, within which development will be assessed in accordance with Plan Policy SETT 1 and subject to meeting the following key site requirements:
- junction improvements, the cost of which will be borne by the developer, will include improved visibility splays and the provision of improved radii and junction widening, all to the satisfaction of Roads Service; and
- there shall be no infilling within the site below the 14.80m O.D contour, in order to preserve the integrity of the local floodplain.
The National Cycle Network passes through the settlement.
