Dungannon and South Tyrone Area Plan 2010
Ballynakilly is located approximately 3 kilometres south of Coalisland and lies on the western side of the A45 Ballynakilly Road (see Map No. 68). The settlement comprises two public sector housing developments at the northeastern end of Coash Road and a series of single dwellings that extend in linear form along Coash Road. There are two halls and a car repair workshop in the village.
The village has been the subject of a number of recent substantial residential approvals and the character of the settlement is likely to be adversely affected if future large-scale growth is maintained.
Single dwellings of an appropriate design will normally be acceptable 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. Accordingly, residential developments in excess of fifteen units will not normally be permitted.
In order to reinforce local identity, all residential proposals should be guided and informed by the traditional rural built forms in the locality. Housing developments should reflect the essentially rural character of the settlement and not lead either individually or cumulatively to large scale suburban estate type layouts. The use of designs and materials unrelated to the surrounding rural locality will not be acceptable.
