Derry Area Plan 2011
Introduction: Planning Policy Statements

Planning Policy Statements (PPSs) set out the policies of the Department on different aspects of land use planning. Their contents apply to the whole of Northern Ireland and will be taken into account in the preparation of Development Plans and may also be material to decisions taken on individual planning applications and appeals.
The Department has published 6 PPSs to-date: May 2000
Two further PPSs have been issued in draft form:
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 PPS can best be implemented. A programme of future PPS publications is proposed as set out in the Department’s Corporate Business Plan.
