Dungannon and South Tyrone Area Plan 2010
Cappagh is located approximately 15 kilometres northeast of Dungannon (see Map No. 72). The village has developed in a linear form along Cappagh Road with an older core of terraced properties and more recent dispersed single dwellings in the surrounding area. Local facilities are limited. There is a large engineering works to the east of the village core.
Land adjacent to the Altmore River may be subject to flooding.
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 five 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 informal 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.
