PPS 7: Quality Residential Environments
In exercise of its responsibility for planning control in Northern Ireland the Department assesses development proposals against all planning policies and other material considerations that are relevant to it.
The planning policies of this Statement must therefore be read together and in conjunction with the relevant contents of the Department’s development plans and other planning policy publications, including the Regional Development Strategy. The Department will also have regard to the contents of published supplementary planning guidance documents.
The following policies set out the main planning considerations that the Department will take into account in assessing the quality of proposals for new residential development. The provisions of these policies will prevail unless there are other overriding policy or material considerations which outweigh them and justify a contrary decision.
The following policies are covered in this section
- QD 1: Quality in New Residential Development
- QD 2: Design Concept Statements, Concept Master Plans and Comprehensive Planning
