Dungannon and South Tyrone Area Plan 2010
Dernagh/Clonoe is located approximately 3 kilometres east of Coalisland to the north of the B161 Mountjoy Road (see Map No. 78). The settlement comprises mainly dwellings, the majority of which are in three housing developments to the east and west of Moor Road. There is also a small number of single dwellings along the main approach roads to the settlement. The settlement has grown substantially in recent years mostly in the form of large-scale incongruous suburban type layouts unrelated to the essentially rural nature of the settlement. Local facilities are limited and include St Patrick’s Church and a petrol filling station.
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.
