Tension over Coalisland railway land

A row has erupted between Dungannon council and a Coalisland homeowner over an disused plot of railway land in the town.

Dungannon council want to purchase former railway land at Gortnaskea from the Department of Social Development.

But a neighbouring householder has used part of the land as a garden extension – and has refused to leave.

Councillors have ordered officers to continue to pursue possession of the vacant railway plot, despite the homeowner’s objections.

Dungannon council received a letter from solicitors Simmons Meglaughlin & Orr LLP about the land on December 6 last year.

Councillors ruled to pursue the land after discussing the issue at a Strategic Devolopment Committee meeting on December 12.
