The subject comprises a former factory on a site of 2.7 acres. The site benefits from access to one of the main routes into the town. The lands are triangular in shape and benefit from a level topography.
The site falls within the Town Centre Boundary under the adopted Omagh Area Plan 1987-2002 and is not zoned for any specific use.
We understand the land formed part of a larger planning application including neighbouring lands under Planning Reference K/2011/0272/F, which was granted in November 2012 for the demolition of existing buildings and erection of a food superstore, petrol filling station and on-site car park. Interested parties are advised to make their own independent enquiries in this regard.
Omagh continues to grow and there have been several new residential and commercial developments in the town in the recent past. One of the main projects currently under construction is the Strule Shared Education Campus which is only 0.5 miles north of the subject. This new campus occupies a 120 acre site and will bring significant road network improvements and additional footfall to the area. Completion is scheduled for 2020.
As such the subject site is ideally positioned adjoining the recently closed Omagh Health Centre which if combined would provide a substantial corner site for commercial development.
