Dungannon and South Tyrone Area Plan 2010
Annaghmore is located approximately 2 kilometres east of Coalisland. The settlement has developed along Washing Bay Road, Annaghmore Road and Moor Road (see Map No. 64). It comprises a mixture of single dwellings, a number of housing developments and industrial activity. The settlement also has a small range of facilities, including a community centre and primary school but lacks a strong visual focus. Many of the houses in the settlement are of relatively recent construction.
The following areas may be subject to flooding from the adjacent watercourse:
- east of Annaghmore Primary School;
- north of Moor Gardens; and
- southwest of Coney Gardens.
The village has been subject to rapid large scale residential growth unrelated to the character of the settlement. Further unrestrained growth of this scale is likely to adversely alter the settlement character.
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.
