One dozen houses approved for Beragh development

A PLANNING application has been approved to build 12 new houses in  Beragh.

The project in Moylagh Meadows on the edge of the village is an  amendment to a previous application which dates back to 2007.

It will add one dozen, two story semi-detached houses to the development, effectively doubling its size.


Ian Cochrane is the developer behind the new plan, which was granted  permission on June 28.

It’s the third and final phase of the overall Moylagh Meadows  development, which was first approved in 2006.

The new plan changes the original layout from three sets of three town  houses to all semi-detached houses.

A number of conditions have been placed on the developer, including  the requirement to create a public open space and embark on tree- 
planting before any of the new dwellings are occupied.

The space has been requested to aid the integration of the development  into the nearby countryside.

Onus for a landscaping scheme has also been placed on the developer,  who must replace any trees or shrubs should they be damaged or die  
within five years of being planted.

But the permission states that none of the houses can be occupied  until the council signs off on a management and maintenance agreement  
with an appropriate company.


Requirements have also been imposed with regard to access roads and  footpaths.
