The service base of Ballylaneen is limited - no village shop.
The water supply in Ballylaneen is adequate to meet existing needs. There is no public sewerage system in the village.
Existing development in Ballylaneen is clustered around the junction of two county roads. The development boundary (see attached Map) illustrates a number of opportunities for new residential development in the village. It is the policy of the Planning Authority to promote the integrated development of the zoned area utilising a single sewage treatment system. Notwithstanding this, the Council acknowledges the absence of a public sewer and the rural character of the village. For this reason, a flexible approach will be adopted to new residential development at this location. All planning proposals for the area will need to satisfy requirements with respect to access to the public road network and drainage. The zoned land will be more than adequate to meet the demand for housing in Ballylaneen over the next plan period.
