Public Utilities: Infrastructure Costs
It is Government policy to require developers to bear all or part of additional infrastructure costs to enable development to take place. Many development sites will require the provision of additional infrastructure. The infrastructure works could include roads, water and sewerage or land drainage. This policy applies to both public and private sector developments. Where appropriate, planning agreements under Article 40 of the Planning (Northern Ireland) Order 1991 may be used to enable development to proceed. Developers are urged to liaise early in the formulation of their proposals with the relevant Department or Agency.
