Craigavon Area Plan 2010
Settlement Proposals: Ballymacmaine
Ballymacmaine is located approximately 3km east of Lurgan, on the A3 protected route from Lurgan to Moira, within the Green Belt (see Map No. 14). It is a small settlement with several non-residential land uses, including commercial, recreational and community facilities. Development opportunities are limited to along Ballymacbredan Road to the northwest of the settlement.
Single dwelling units of an appropriate design will normally be permitted 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.
Development proposals for land within the settlement limit will be assessed in accordance with Plan Policy SETT 1 and other relevant policies contained within the Plan. A 1.0 hectare site, located northeast of Ballymacbredan Road, is zoned for Housing Phase 1, within which development will also be subject to meeting the following key site requirements:
- development proposals for 4/5 dwellings will require road widening and footway provision across the site frontage only; or
- development proposals for the erection of more than 5 dwellings will require road widening and footway provision across the site frontage and linking to the main Lurgan-Magheralin Road (A3).
