Ards and Down Area Plan 2015
Ards Borough: Ballydrain
|Proposal BDN 01 Settlement Limit|
|A Settlement Limit is designated in accordance with Policy SETT 1 in Volume 1 of the Plan and as indicated on Map No. 2/022, Ballydrain Settlement Map.|
The Settlement Limit has been drawn to prevent the spread of development into the countryside and prevent the further ribboning of development along the Ringneill and Quarry Roads.
Interim sewage disposal measures or development phasing may be necessary for future housing schemes until such time as the required upgrade to the Waste Water Treatment Works serving Ballydrain is complete and fully operational.
Those features or combination of features that contribute to the environmental quality, integrity or character of these areas are listed below.
LLPA 1 Ringneill House and river corridors
- locally important building and surrounding landscaped gardens and mature trees comprise important element in local landscape
- network of river corridors on shores of Strangford Lough provide distinctive setting to the small settlement
