More than 50 new homes have received the green light from Mid Ulster District Council’s Planning Committee.
At its meeting last night (6 November), 4 separate residential developments were approved, including a substantial application for 29 houses to include both public and private amenity space, as well as roads and waste water treatment plant development, at Church Street in Ballygawley.
Benburb Road in The Moy will also be the site of 18 detached houses, with landscaping and an on-site waste water treatment plant, while 7 houses adjacent to the Tobermore Road in Desertmartin and 11 homes in St Lurach’s Gardens in Maghera, have also received planning permission.
Speaking after approvals were granted, Chair of the Planning Committee, Councillor Cáthal Mallaghan, said:
“Mid Ulster has the fastest growing population of any of the 11 council areas and the availability of quality housing is key to ensuring that local people have the opportunities to live and work in their home towns and villages.
“These approvals are evidence of our on-going work to support sustainable housing development in Mid Ulster”.
