Proposed Residential Development


We are inviting your views on a proposal for a residential development in Mullavilly, prior to submitting an associated outline planning application to the Armagh, Banbridge and Craigavon Borough Council. 

An outline planning application seeks to establish the principle of development on a site.  It will not contain detailed site or house plans.  If outline planning permission is granted, detailed plans may then be submitted with a separate, subsequent reserved matters application.  There are opportunities for the public to submit comments to the Council during the course of both the outline and reserved matters applications.   

Information about the Mullavilly site and proposed development is provided below, as well as details for providing comments and the next steps following this public consultation. The feedback received during this public consultation will help to inform the outline planning application that will subsequently be submitted to the Council.

Application Site

The application site comprises part of 5 Mullavilly Green, 41 Mullavilly Road and the adjoining field to the east.   

The site had previously included several other properties to allow options for securing a suitable access, which included part of 38 and 39 Laurel Heights, 39 Laurel Drive, 3 and 11 Rose Garden Close and 14 Mullavilly Green.  However, 5 Mullavilly Green has since been purchased by the applicant to deliver an access, and this arrangement is therefore intended to be shown on the conceptual site plan that will be submitted with the outline planning application.

A copy of the current site location plan can be viewed and downloaded below.  The application site is shown outlined in red.

The Proposal

An outline planning application is intended to be submitted to establish the principle of residential development on the application site. No detailed site or house plans will be submitted with this outline planning application.  If outline planning permission is granted, detailed plans may then be submitted with a separate, subsequent reserved matters application. 

You can view and download a conceptual site plan below, which shows the general arrangement intended for the proposed residential development.

We would appreciate any feedback you might have in response to this draft proposal. All your comments will be considered before a planning application will be submitted to the Council.

Please email all comments to, or post to:
O'Toole & Starkey Ltd, Arthur House, 41 Arthur Street, Belfast, BT1 4GB
Please also get in touch if you would like any further information.  Our full contact details are below and on our Contact page.  We are happy to facilitate video conferencing on request to discuss the proposals with members of the design team.

All comments should be provided before the end of 22nd June 2022 to ensure they are given consideration before submission of the formal planning application.

Next Steps

Following the conclusion of this pre-application public consultation, all comments will be reviewed. Once considered, relevant changes may be made to the development and all comments, including a summary of the key concerns and the applicant’s responses will be included in a Pre-Application Community Consultation Report.  This report will accompany the application submission.

Supporting technical and environmental documents will be finalised to accompany the application.  Once complete, the supporting documents and final proposed drawings will be submitted with the Pre-Application Community Consultation Report as a planning application to the Council for consideration and determination.

After the planning application has been validated, the Council will proceed with its own statutory consultation. The Council will notify the local community about the consultation and application process and how they can participate.
