Planning Strategy for Rural Northern Ireland
The Context: Consultation Responses Design
Opinions varied widely on the subject of design. Some thought higher priority should be given to educating people on the benefits of better development standards. Others considered that the standards should be made less rigid and arbitrary. Some said that designs which enable traditional buildings to be adapted to modem conditions should be encouraged. Others suggested that people are entitled to decide for themselves on design. There was wide support for the use and enforcement of planning conditions requiring landscaping of new development.
