Craigavon Area Plan 2010
Settlement Proposals: Derrymacash
Derrymacash is situated to the north of the Borough, approximately 1km northwest of Aghacommon village and the M1 motorway (see Map No. 19). The settlement lies within the Green Belt, adjacent to the Countryside Policy Area. It comprises mainly of residential development, with associated community facilities. The settlement occupies a quite elevated position and is surrounded by low-lying land. Potential exists for expansion of the village, mainly to the west, off Ballynery North Road and Derrymacash Road.
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.
An area is zoned for open space at Wolf Island Terrace.
The National Cycle Network passes to the west of the settlement.
