Craigavon Town Centre Boundaries and Retail Designations Plan 2010
Plan Context: Planning Policy Statements
Planning Policy Statements
Planning Policy Statements (PPSs) set out the regional planning policies on particular aspects of land use planning and apply to the whole of Northern Ireland. Their contents have informed the Plan preparation and the Plan Proposals and they are material to decisions on individual planning applications and appeals within Craigavon Borough. Details of PPSs, and Draft PPSs at May 2008, are contained in Appendix 2.
The Department has a rolling programme for preparation of new PPSs and review of existing PPSs. Where new or revised PPSs are published in final form they will supersede the corresponding policies within the Plan.
PPSs may from time to time be revised to take account of changing circumstances, including experience gained through the development planning and development control processes. Good practice guides may also be issued to illustrate how concepts contained in PPSs can best be implemented.
Of particular relevance to this Plan is PPS 5 – Retailing and Town Centres, which is currently being reviewed. A consultation draft of revised PPS 5 – Retailing, Town Centres and Commercial Leisure Developments was issued in July 2006.
