Craigavon Area Plan 2010
Settlement Proposals: Aghagallon
Aghagallon is situated to the northeast of the Borough (see Map No. 7). The settlement has mainly developed along Aghalee Road in a linear fashion with development to the southeast along Colane Road. St Patrick's Church and adjacent primary school provide a central focus for the village.
The upgrade of the sewage treatment works at Aghagallon is currently underway with an expected completion date of November 2004.
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. However, housing development proposals may be subject to phasing in accordance with the implementation of the sewage treatment works upgrading timetable.
Development proposals for land within the settlement limit will be assessed in accordance with Plan Policy SETT 1 and other relevant policies contained in the Plan.
Development proposals for land zoned as Phase 2 development land will be assessed in accordance with Plan Policy SETT 2.
A Local Landscape Policy Area (LLPA) is designated in the centre of Aghagallon at St Patrick's Church, which is a listed building. The LLPA includes the Church and its immediate surroundings, which are enclosed by a large, curvilinear earthwork of some antiquity. The LLPA is designated to protect this visually important and significant feature in the local historic landscape and the surroundings of the listed building.
Policy for the control of development in the LLPA is set out in Plan Policy CON 2 and CON 3 in Part 2 of the Plan.
