Derry Area Plan 2011
Villages and Small Settlements: Killea
Killea is located some 7 kilometres south west of the City on the Letterkenny Road (B193), a protected route. Most of the settlement lies within Co. Donegal focused around the public housing estate, with a small amount of development east of Killea Bridge in Co. Londonderry.
The Department has defined a development limit within which small scale development and expansion of the settlement will be accommodated. The development limit has been drawn to allow for a small amount of rounding off and infilling north of the protected route. A 1.3 ha site, north of the minor road has been included within the settlement limit. Development proposals should provide for substantial and appropriate landscaping along the development limit. Infrastructural improvements including road widening, junction improvements and sewerage facilities will be required.
