Planning permission for 60 dwellings in Stranorlar refused

Planning permission has been refused for 60 dwellings in Stranorlar.

Permission was applied for by Harrison Ventures Limited for the development at Admiran, Stranorlar in May 2021.

The proposed development included the construction of 60 dwellings and associated site works, including; the upgrading of a vehicular entrance, a new pedestrian entrance and a central landscaped open space containing a kick-about area and toddlers play area.

In refusing planning permission, the council says the Planning Authority was not satisfied based on the information submitted whereby no direct pedestrian access from the site to Stranorlar town and associated amenities all of which are located on the same side of the road, has been provided for so that pedestrians can safely access existing services.

The Council added that, accordingly, to permit the development as proposed would materially contravene the policies set out in the Seven Strategic Towns Local Area Plan, would by itself and by precedent endanger public safety by reason of a traffic hazard, and would therefore be contrary to proper planning and sustainable development of the area.

The Council in addition, says the Planning Authority was not satisfied on the basis of the excessively high density proposed and the submitted layout scheme that adequate traffic safety issues can be accommodated.
