Dungannon and South Tyrone Area Plan 2010
Derrylee is located approximately 12 kilometres east of Dungannon (see Map No. 79). The settlement extends in loose linear form along Derrylee Road. It consists mainly of single dwellings with facilities limited to a church and a hall. Annagarriff Wood and Peatlands Park lie to the south of the settlement.
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.
