Settlement Designation

Cloghmills functions as a local service centre for its surrounding rural hinterland with a good range of retail, commercial, community and educational facilities. Recreational facilities are, however, limited, relative to the size of the village. A substantial number of private sector dwellings have been built over the past decade, a reflection of its growing residential function. By 2001 the population of Cloghmills had reached 1,224.
The village has good road links to both Ballymoney, 15 kilometres to the north west, and Ballymena, 16 kilometres to the south. It is located a short distance east of the A26 key transport corridor, but has limited public transport connections. Cloghmills is designated a Large Village in the Settlement Hierarchy in Volume 1 of the Plan.
Designation CS 01 Settlement Development Limit
A settlement development limit is designated as identified on Map No. 2/04 - Cloghmills.
The development limit, which has generally been defined around the existing built up area, will consolidate the village form and ensure that any new housing is convenient to all local facilities.
