Craigavon Area Plan 2010
Settlement Proposals: Derrytrasna
Derrytrasna is located on a plateau surrounded predominantly by bogland, close to the shores of Lough Neagh to the north northwest of the Borough (see Map No. 21). The settlement comprises mainly residential development, most of which are modern bungalows, and acts as a small service centre to the surrounding agricultural community, with a church, a primary school and a post office facility. The sewage treatment works cordon sanitaire, and access difficulties, are a constraint to development within Derrytrasna.
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.
The National Cycle Route passes through the settlement.
