Green light for Mid-Ulster housing developments

By Tim Smith

Two significant housing developments have been given the green light in Mid-Ulster.

The first, near Loran Vale in Cookstown, will see 23 new houses constructed. The second is a residential development of 43 dwellings on the Moneymore Road in Magherafelt.

Approval was given at a meeting of Mid-Ulster District Council's Planning Committee this week.

At the same meeting, the council also approved an application from SGN to further the company's 'Gas to the West' scheme.

Councillor Cathal Mallaghan, chair of the planning committee, said: "Mid-Ulster has a growing population and with that growth comes demand for housing.

"Housing developments, particularly close to our towns, help to ensure that we meet accommodation needs, while also contributing to the vibrancy of our retail centres."
