Craigavon Area Plan 2010
Settlement Proposals: Gamblestown
Gamblestown is situated to the southeast of the Borough, approximately 1.5km from Donaghcloney, on the Lurgan to Dromore Road (see Map No. 22). The settlement consists mainly of residential development and a church hall. Retail warehousing is located on the periphery of the settlement. There are no other facilities. 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.
Two sites are shown on the Settlement Map as Areas of Archaeological Potential. These sites may contain archaeological remains and, therefore, developers should note that the provisions of Planning Policy Statement 6 (PPS 6): Planning, Archaeology and the Built Heritage, Policy BH3 will apply.
