Identifying the Archaeological and Built Heritage and the Role of Development Plans: Areas of Townscape or Village Character

2.21 While all settlements in Northern Ireland have their own unique identity, there are certain areas within our cities, towns and villages which exhibit a distinct character normally based on their historic built form or layout. Some of these have merited statutory designation as conservation areas by virtue of their special architectural or historic interest, but for others it may be more appropriate to define areas of townscape or village character.
2.22 Development plans, where appropriate, will designate areas of townscape or village character. Local policies or proposals and guidance for such areas will also be included in the plan or where appropriate in supplementary planning guidance.
