Zoning H 3 Groarty Road/Creggan Road

A 42.0 ha sloping site located on the western fringe of the City between the Springtown Road to the north, the Groarty Road to the south and to the east by the Creggan Road and ongoing medium density housing development at Cashelmore Park. The site is bounded by the City Development Limit to the west. The site comprises a series of open fields which rise gently in a westerly direction above Creggan Road and towards Groarty Road. Development should respect existing slopes and will be confined to single storey dwellings on portions of the upper slopes to the west due to the elevated nature of the site. Apart from a small belt of trees and mature hedging to the north of the site towards Springtown Road, vegetation is limited comprising mainly low hedgerows. Additional landscaping should be provided as appropriate to site boundaries and within the site to integrate future housing. In particular, the western boundary of the site should be strengthened by a belt of substantial landscape planting to help assimilate and soften the development impact on the open countryside. A density range of 15-20 dwellings per hectare is considered suitable. Access will be permitted via existing accesses off Creggan Road and from those lands along Creggan Road yet to be developed. An additional access from the Springtown Road is also acceptable to serve this housing area.

Zoning H 5 Fairview Road

A 5.0 ha site located to the south of Lower Galliagh Road and immediately adjacent to residential development at Woodbrook. Taking into account the substantial zonings to the north and west it is now considered that a site of 1.5 hectares could accommodate the community needs of the immediate area and is zoned accordingly with the remaining 3.5 hectares zoned for residential development. A density range of 15-30 dwellings per hectare is considered suitable for this site. Access to the site will be the subject of detailed consideration at planning application stage bearing in mind the established development and the scale of use proposed.

Zoning H 8 Ballyarnett Farm

A 1.5 ha triangular shaped site at Ballyarnett on the northern outskirts of the City and bounded to the north by the Beragh Hill Road, to the east by the Fir Road and to the west by a belt of tall mature trees which extends around the southern tip of the site.
The site forms part of the Listed Ballyarnett Farm and outbuildings complex. Any development of this site must allow for the sensitive rehabilitation of the Listed Buildings. Mature trees to the west and south of the site should be retained and the Department will seek a scheme which protects those trees, minimises disturbance to them and avoids their root system.
Prior to any design works being carried out the developer is advised to consult with the Department’s Environment and Heritage Service and Planning Service. Access will be permitted off the Beragh Hill Road and/or the Fir Road.
