PPS 7 (Addendum): Residential Extensions and Alterations
In exercise of its responsibility for planning control in Northern Ireland the Department assesses development proposals against all planning policies and other material considerations that are relevant to it.
The planning policy of this Addendum to PPS 7 must therefore be read together and in conjunction with the relevant contents of the Department’s development plans and other planning policy publications, including the Regional Development Strategy. The Department will also have regard to the contents of published supplementary planning guidance documents.
The following policy sets out the main considerations that the Department will take into account in assessing proposals for residential extensions and/or alterations. The provisions of this policy will prevail unless there are other overriding policy or material considerations, that outweigh it and justify a contrary decision.
