Planning Strategy for Rural Northern Ireland
The Context: Consultation Responses Housing
Strong, but far from unanimous opinions were put forward on the topic of housing in the countryside. Some wanted the numbers of new dwellings in the countryside to be reduced. Others considered that people who have been born into the rural community should be able to build and live in that community. There was support for the development of clusters of housing to facilitate local people to live in the countryside. It was generally considered that planning policy should facilitate the improvement and expansion of the housing stock.
