A NUMBER of new developments in Moygashel could create jobs and houses in the village.

Two new housing developments are on their way and a long vacant business unit is to be transformed.

It is understood the former Turkington's motorcycle site is to be turned into a new laboratory business.

The site has lain vacant for around a decade and would be another in a number of new business enterprises which have come into the village in the past few years and created jobs.

And two housing developments have been earmarked for the village.

One of these is on a site at Roskeen Road.

A total of eight houses are planned for the site, which will include two disabled bungalows.

And the developers, housing association company Apex Housing, plan to be on site by the end of March.

A second housing development is planned for Linen Court, this time providing seven houses.

It will consist of four single-storey semi-detached houses, two two-storey semi-detached homes and one bungalow.

And the developments have been welcomed enthusiastically by Ulster Unionist Assembly candidate for Fermanagh & South Tyrone, Rosemary Barton.


She said: "The residents for some time have voiced concerns at the lack of investment made by Mid-Ulster Council in Moygashel. I am pleased to report that Apex Housing plan to be on site at Roskeen Road by the end of March in order to start construction, with a completion date of the end of 2017.

“I will support the planning application for a social housing development on land at Linen Court, Moygashel. There is an acute shortage of suitable housing in Moygashel and this is a very positive development.

“I am also delighted that a business property on the Main Road which has been vacant for years is being developed for a new business and the owners deserve our support in their venture.

“Much work still needs to be done with vacant sites in Moygashel to improve the appearance of the village."
