Information Leaflet 14: Guidance on Pre-Application Discussions
Pre-application discussions are available for:
- strategically important applications including those with significant economic implications;
- major commercial, industrial and other public sector proposals;
- major Quality Initiative housing schemes, including all Housing Association applications;
- major infrastructure projects (for example in relation to waste disposal, waste water treatment and energy).
In general terms, strategically important applications must have significant economic and/or social benefits for the region, or a significant part of the region. However, they may relate to some smaller scale proposals, for example in the health and education sectors, which fall within the scope of the wider Investment Strategy for Northern Ireland infrastructure programme.
