Dungannon and South Tyrone Area Plan 2010
Edendork is located approximately three kilometres northeast of Dungannon, on the A45 Dungannon to Coalisland road (see Map No. 82). The settlement is defined in two nodes. The eastern cluster comprises wholly of housing, with a mix of single, detached dwelling units along road frontages and developments of multiple housing. The western portion contains a small number of houses and most of the settlement’s facilities, which include a primary school, hall and church. A number of industrial activities are also located in this cluster.
A settlement limit is designated around the two development clusters to provide a visual break and to prevent the coalescence of the clusters.
Land adjacent to the watercourse east of Cullion Road may be subject to flooding
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.
