Craigavon Area Plan 2010
Settlement Proposals: Scotch Street
Scotch Street is located west of Portadown on the Moy Road, within the County Armagh orchard belt (see Map No. 27). The settlement has a strong community nucleus containing a school, church and petrol filling station and shop. The settlement is subject to high development pressure.
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 zoned as Phase 2 development land will be assessed in accordance with Plan Policy SETT 2.
An Area of Archaeological Potential has been identified on the Settlement Map, south of Moy Road. This site may contain archaeological remains, and therefore, developers should note that the provisions of Planning Policy Statement 6 (PPS6): Planning, Archaeology and the Built Heritage, Policy BH3 will apply.
