Mid Ulster District Council’s planners are currently considering an application that if approved will see 55 new homes built in Ballyronan.

Lodged by agent APS Architects on behalf of applicant Bell Contracts the application seeks permission to build a housing development of 55 units comprising of 54 two storey semi-detached and one storey detached dwelling at lands adjacent to 25A Ballyneill Road.

The 2.4 hectare site proposed for this development is currently vacant according to the application form and any property build on the site will have its water provided by the mains. Surface water collected as a result of the development will be disposed of via the main as will any foul sewage collected.

According to the statement of consultation and community involvement submitted with the application a total of seven people attended a public consultation event on April 4 in Ballyronan Marina Centre.

Of these seven, three commented on attached forms and their responses indicate the general public were “happy to see green open space and thought the house types were good family homes that would benefit the local area”, according to the statement.

Lodged on June 22, the application was validated on the same day and will be advertised until today.

Council’s planners have an internal target date of January 18 2023.
