Draft PPS 18: Renewable Energy
Planning Policies

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 policies of this Statement must therefore be read together and in conjunction with the relevant contents of the existing development plans, other planning policy publications, including the Regional Development Strategy, and regard given to the contents of supplementary planning guidance documents.
The following policies set out the main considerations that the Department will take into account in assessing proposals for renewable energy and heat generating facilities. They also deal with the integration of renewable energy into buildings and the application of Passive Solar Design principles in new development. The provisions of these policies will prevail unless there is other overriding policy or material considerations that outweigh them and justify a contrary decision.
