Dungannon and South Tyrone Area Plan 2010
Granville is located approximately 3 kilometres southwest of Dungannon, close to the A4 Belfast to Enniskillen Road (see Map No. 86). It provides the principal location for industrial land for the Borough.
The settlement is made up of three main portions; the Industrial Estate and industrial zoning (see Plan Policy IND 1); a public sector housing development to the south of Granville Road; and, an area of single dwelling units along the northern side of Granville Road and a minor road to the northwest. Local facilities are limited and include a shop and primary school.
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.
