Rural Landscape Wedges
Rural Landscape Wedges are designated to the north of Ballyclare between the settlement and Ballyeaston, and to the south between Ballyclare and Hillhead in order to prevent the merger of Ballyclare with these settlements, protect the setting of Ballyclare, Ballyeaston and Hillhead and protect the rural character of the area.
