Dungannon and South Tyrone Area Plan 2010
Carland is located approximately 5 kilometres north of Dungannon, adjacent to the A29 Dungannon to Cookstown Road (see Map No. 73). The settlement has developed in loose linear form along Lisnagowan Road. It comprises mainly of single dwellings and farm complexes. Local facilities are limited to a primary school on Lisnagowan Road and a restaurant and public house on the A29 Cookstown Road, to the southeast of the settlement.
The lack of sewerage facilities is an overriding constraint on growth and planning permission will not normally be granted unless a satisfactory means of sewage disposal can be effected.
It is proposed to realign the Cookstown Road to by-pass the junction at Carland Bridge. The protected road line for the route is shown on Map Nos. 1 b and 73 (see also Plan Policy TRAN 1).
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.
