Derry Area Plan 2011
Villages and Small Settlements: Ballyrory
Ballyrory is situated on the edge of the Sperrins Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and astride the Learmount Road between the villages of Claudy and Park some 4 kilometres north west of Park. Originally consisting of some 30 public authority houses on the east side of the road, some additional development has occurred along the west side of Learmount Road mainly in the form of single roadside housing sites. The settlement contains a post office, shop and petrol filling station.
The Department has defined a development limit within which small scale development and further expansion of the settlement will be accommodated. There has been some recent commercial expansion within the settlement. This is an area experiencing strong demand for houses and the development limit allows opportunities for in-depth development opportunities commensurate with its topographical setting.
