Derry Area Plan 2011
Villages and Small Settlements: Nixon's Corner
Nixon’s Corner is located some 5 kilometres south west of the City to the north of the A40 road, a protected route. It lies just outside the Area of High Scenic Value associated with the Foyle river banks and approaches from the east are attractive through a well wooded landscape.
The Department has defined a development limit within which small scale development and expansion of the settlement will be accommodated. Due to a combination of topography and infrastructure constraints, there is scope for only small scale expansion of the settlement. A 0.8 ha site to the western side of the settlement, north of Letterkenny Road has been included. Dwellings shall be restricted to single storey. Substantial and appropriate landscaping along the settlement boundary should be incorporated in any development proposal.
