Zoning H 27 Crescent Link

A 55.5 ha site along the eastern side of the Crescent Link, bounded to the north by the Rossdowney Road, to the south by medium density housing development at Knightsbridge and to the east by the limit of the River Faughan catchment area. The site is mainly flat except for a portion to the north which slopes gently upwards away from the Crescent Link in an easterly direction.
Apart from several mature trees at the northern end of the site and a section of screen planting along the Crescent Link, vegetation is limited to a series of low hedgerows. Additional landscaping should be provided as appropriate to site boundaries and within the site to integrate future housing. The eastern boundary of the site should be strengthened by a belt of mature planting to help assimilate and soften the development impact on the open countryside.
It is important to ensure that adequate open space is made available within the site. Land has not been specifically zoned for this purpose so as not to restrict unduly the design of future housing layouts, however, provision of open space should be incorporated within the overall scheme at an early stage in the design process.
This zoning also provides for a Local Centre and a separate commercial development as described at para 8.9.
A density range of 15-20 dwellings per hectare is considered suitable. Access to these lands will only be permitted from the new roundabout as indicated.

Zoning H 28 Rossdowney Road

A 2.0 ha site along Rossdowney Road adjacent to Kilfennan Presbyterian Church and surrounded by medium density housing development. A density range of 15-20 dwellings per hectare is considered suitable. Access will only be permitted via a stub road off the approved access to adjoining zoned land immediately to the north west of the site. The Department will also accept a community facility on this site but in the absence of an acceptable community proposal, the Department is likely to favour residential use on the site.

A 7.0 ha site comprising 2 fields bounded to the north and west by housing development at Nelson Drive and Abbeydale Road and to the east by vacant land identified for recreational and amenity use.

Zoning H 30 Ballyoan

A 37.5 ha site located on land overlooking the Caw roundabout and sited between the Clooney and Rossdowney Roads. The site which comprises mainly open fields divided by low hedgerows slopes gently up from the Clooney Road before rising steeply towards the most elevated portion of the site along Rossdowney Road.
Two lines of mature trees and hedging within the centre of the site rise towards and screen several dwellings and outbuildings at Rossdowney Road. New development should respect existing slopes and contours and seek to retain and protect these mature trees. In addition other hedgerows should as far as possible be retained. Landscaping will be provided as appropriate, particularly along the most elevated sections of the site.
Given the prominence of this zoning, the Department will require that development proposals comply in full with Policies ENV 6, ENV 7, BE 1,H 1 and H 2.
A density range of 10-20 dwellings per hectare is considered suitable. Access to these lands will only be permitted via a new road off the roundabout at the entrance to Gransha Hospital.

Zoning H 31 Waterfoot

A 7.0 ha site of undulating land located between the Gransha Intake to the west, the Waterfoot Hotel complex to the east and adjoining low density housing development at Bridgewater to the south.
Development should respect existing slopes and contours and take account of the proposed pedestrian/cycle path linkage between the 2 bridges which may affect the western boundary of the site where it adjoins the Gransha Intake. Development proposals should incorporate a landscape buffer to the western boundary of the site and include pedestrian linkage through the site.
Care must also be exercised to ensure that the development of the site does not cause a deterioration to the water quality of the Intake. A density range of 10-20 dwellings per hectare is considered suitable. Access to the site will be permitted off Caw roundabout. Further limited accesses from existing residential areas adjoining the site will be judged on their merits.
