Craigavon Area Plan 2010
Settlement Proposals: Derrymore
Derrymore is a linear settlement situated on the shores of Lough Neagh to the northeast of the Borough (see Map No. 20). The settlement comprises residential development and a primary school, however there are no other community facilities. Development is concentrated on the eastern side of the Derrymore Road, opposite the Lough shore and the Countryside Policy Area lying to the west.
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.
Development proposals for land zoned as Phase 2 development land will be assessed in accordance with Plan Policy SETT 2.
The National Cycle Network passes through the settlement.
