Derry Area Plan 2011
Villages and Small Settlements: Lettershendoney
Lettershendoney is located 9 kilometres east of Londonderry close to the junction of the Tirbracken and Edenreagh Roads. It is set on a relatively flat and open site with the land rising to the north, east and west. The area immediately around the settlement contains a large area of poorly drained scrub and bog. Lettershendoney is a post-war rural housing development which was built in the 1960s with further additions in the north of the estate around the early 1970s.
The Department has defined a development limit which will accommodate small scale development and allow for further expansion of the settlement. The north western development limit stretching from Gorticross Road to the northern tip of the village shall be defined by a substantial buffer of tree planting. Comprehensive development of this site is required in compliance with Plan policies including Policy H 1.
