Plans have been approved for a new £1.2 million housing development in Co Armagh.
The development – consisting of 16 properties – will go ahead at Derrymacash.
At the same time, approval is also being sought for a separate housing scheme, costing in the region of £1 million, at Portadown.
The Derrymacash development has been approved by planning officials at Armagh City, Banbridge and Craigavon Borough Council.
Eight semi-detached and eight detached homes will be constructed on lands adjacent and south east of Nos 4 and 10 Island Hill Manor and opposite Nos 7 to 14 Wolfs Island Terrace.
The houses will also benefit from the provision of a pedestrian access, with views looking out into the countryside.
APK Holdings has been given the go-ahead for the work.
Meanwhile, Bocombra Developments has lodged an application seeking permission to build 14 two storey homes – six detached and eight semi-detached.
The site in question is on lands at Bocombra Meadows, south east of 37 Bocombra Hill and 18 Bocombra Meadows, and north of 12 and 13 Ballyhannon Grove, Portadown.
That development which, it is understood, would cost in the region of £1 million, is now being considered by ABC Council planning officials, with a decision due in the coming months.
