Ards and Down Area Plan 2015
Ards Borough: Donaghadee Open Space & Recreation
Donaghadee has a wide range of open space and outdoor facilities available for recreation use. These include playing fields, golf course, coastal walkway and the harbour area.
The opportunity exists to add to existing recreation facilities by the provision of walkways and the protection of existing areas of open space not readily available for other uses.
Additionally, there are a number of playing fields associated with the schools in the town.
This site, comprising 2 hectares of land, is proposed for amenity, open space and recreation around the scheduled rath within the DE 11 Housing Zoning. This will provide a substantial open space area around the scheduled monument for amenity, open space and recreation and also the unscheduled monument located to the east of the zoning. This open space will enable the monuments to be appreciated in the true perspective offered by longer-distance views.
