Renewed Consultation To Begin Over Plans To Develop Leisure Hub In Coalisland

Construction News Image
A renewed consultation is to begin over plans to develop a leisure, health and well-being hub at Gortgonis, Coalisland.

Mid Ulster District Council is to undertake the consultation with the local community.

The £5 million project will see a new leisure centre constructed, incorporating a gym, community hall, changing rooms and meeting rooms, with planned outdoor facilities to include a 6-lane running track, 3G pitch, woodland walkways and two connected play areas, one for young children and one equipped for older children.

While a 'pre-application notification' (PAN) process was already undertaken by the Council in November 2018, a procedural error with the wording of the public notice advertisement has since been identified and the pre-application notification process, including community consultation is now being re-commenced.

A website will be available with details of the proposed application, where anyone can leave their feedback online, and two virtual meetings will also be held to allow local people to feedback their views on the proposals.

Residents living within 200m of the site will receive direct notification of the renewed consultation process with feedback forms included in their information packs.

The community consultation opens on Monday 9 August and runs until Friday 23 August.

Two virtual presentation events will take place on Monday 9th August, the first from 10am to 11am and the second from 6pm to 7pm.
