Mid Ulster District Council Approves Major Development Plans

Construction News Image
Mid Ulster District Council has approved two major development plans across the region.

Planning permission was granted for a business and road expansion at Maximus Crushing and Screening's Coalisland Road site in Dungannon.

New state of the art offices will be developed along with a new production facility.

Approximately 1km of new road between the Carland Road and Coalisland Road will also be constructed.

Chair of the Planning Committee, Councillor Cáthal Mallaghan, said: "This is a significant investment by Maximus which demonstrates growth in the screening industry and the sector's continued importance for the Mid Ulster economy and employment.

"The new link road not only facilitates the company's expansion, but will also help to relieve congestion in Dungannon, which we all know is awaiting a much-needed bypass.

"This application also brings back into use the old brick works quarry which has lain derelict for a long time, and will contribute to further rejuvenation of this industrial land."

Outline planning permission was also granted to Acheson and Glover Limited for a major housing scheme.

The scheme is located at lands to the rear of 40 Ballyronan Road, adjoining Kilronan School in Magherafelt, and also includes open space and a new roundabout.

The Council approved the plans at its Planning Committee meeting on 04 December.
