Development Management Practice Notes

The following Development Management Practice Notes are designed to guide planning officers and relevant users through legislation and deals primarily with procedures as well as good practice. The new practice notes stem from the Planning Act (Northern Ireland) 2011 and any related subordinate legislation. The emphasis is very much on advice, but where explicit legislative requirements must be followed these will be made clear.
The Department will add further practice notes in due course.
