Larne Area Plan 2010
Policies & Proposals: Utilities
The provision of utilities within Larne Borough is the responsibility of a number of Government Departments, Larne Borough Council, statutory bodies and the private sector. The main services are water and sewerage, waste disposal, electricity and telecommunications. In the provision of new infrastructure requiring express planning consent, the need for such facilities will be balanced against the objective of conserving the environment and protecting amenity.
The Department will seek to ensure that all new facilities, including the provision of overhead cables are designed to a high standard and in an environmentally sensitive manner to ensure minimal disruption or interference which would be detrimental to the natural or man made environment, particularly in designated areas of landscape or townscape value. In relation to infrastructure costs it is Government Policy to require developers to bear all or part of additional infrastructure costs.
