Published on Fri, 6 Mar 2009
Publication of new and updated information following the second pre-Independent Examination meeting on 11/12/08 and Stage 1 of the Independent Examination in February 2009.
The second pre-Examination meeting in relation to the Draft Magherafelt Area Plan 2015 was held on 11 December 2008
At the meeting, the Planning Service agreed, as a follow-up to its Statement of 30 September 2008 on the implications of the increase in the Housing Growth Indicator for Magherafelt District in the Regional Development Strategy, to provide additional information in relation to site-specific objections seeking additional housing land in Magherafelt.
As agreed, the Planning Service has now prepared a Statement on the above matter and published it on its website. At the same time the Planning Service is publishing a revised and updated version of its Statement of 30 September 2008 referred to above. This was provided for discussion at Stage 1 of the Independent Examination in February 2009 and contains some minor changes to the figures in the document to take account of, among other things, some limited double-counting and the publication of Draft PPS21 ‘Sustainable Development in the Countryside’ in November 2008. These two statements are available to download using the links below.
