Derry Area Plan 2011
Villages and Small Settlements: Ardmore
Ardmore lies some 6 kilometres from Londonderry City Centre close to the urban edge at Currynierin at the junction of the Ardmore and Ballybogie roads. The settlement nucleus grew up around a crossroads junction with development concentrated in a number of public authority housing estates and more recent private developments.
The Department has defined a development limit within which small scale development and further expansion of the settlement will be accommodated. The settlement lies within the Green Belt and adjacent to an Area of High Scenic Value. The development limit allows opportunities for in-depth development commensurate with its Green Belt location.
