Derry Area Plan 2011
Villages and Small Settlements: Straidarran
Straidarran is located some 4 kilometres south east of Claudy village along the Glenshane Road (B74). It is linear in nature extending some one kilometre along the B74 with part also extending along the minor Clagan Road and comprises 3 separate parts.
The Department has defined a development limit within which small scale development and further expansion of the settlement will be accommodated. There is a need to prevent further elongation of the settlement and encourage in-depth development on remaining and proposed development sites. There is scope to provide a number of development sites whilst protecting the attractive views towards the Faughan Valley to the south from the Glenshane Road. The settlement provides potential for single houses or in-depth serviced sites.
