District Proposals: Ballyrobert Background
Ballyrobert is located approximately 4 km south of Ballyclare and has developed around the junction of the Ballyrobert Road and the Mossley Road/The Longshot.
|Designation BT 01 Settlement Development Limit Ballyrobert|
|A Settlement Development Limit is designated for Ballyrobert as identified on Map No. 6a - Ballyrobert.|
The Settlement Development Limit is designated to take account of land committed for development and the role of the settlement whilst protecting its natural setting.
The Settlement Development Limit is also designated to promote a compact settlement form and prevent inappropriate expansion into the countryside along the four roads leading from the Ballyrobert cross-roads and prevent coalescence with Kingsmoss to the south.
The Settlement Development Limit for Ballyrobert respects the natural limit north of the settlement at Lisnalinchy Burn and the old railway line to the east of the settlement as a physical barrier to further development.
