PPS 7: Quality Residential Environments
Policy QD 2: Comprehensive Planning
4.52 The comprehensive planning of new or extended housing areas is considered to be of vital importance in pursuit of an improved quality standard. Piecemeal development may result in the undesirable fragmentation of a new neighbourhood and fail to secure the proper phasing of development with associated infrastructure and facilities.
4.53 The Department would encourage land pooling by owners and developers to facilitate the comprehensive development of residential sites. Where this cannot be achieved, and comprehensive development of the site would be prejudiced, the Department will refuse the application.
