Newell Stores roundabout proposals refused by planners10th February 2014 | By: Coalisland Post | Comments Off on Newell Stores roundabout proposals refused by planners
Plans to make further changes to Coalisland town centre’s road layout for new supermarket Newell Stores have been rejected.
Newell Stores developers submitted plans to create a second exit from its car park on to the newly created Lineside roundabout.
The roundabout was originally constructed as part of the Newell Stores development and joined a host of roundabouts strewn across the town’s tangled road system.
The latest proposals would have led to further changes to the main road in Coalisland town centre despite the supermarket only opening in early 2013.
But planners at the Department of the Environment have rejected the proposals for an additional exit from the supermarket.
They said the proposals would “prejudice the safety and convenience of road users” because they affected a mini-roundabout.
Clarman architects have contested the concerns over the impact on traffic flow, according to planning documents.
