Spatial Planning Timescales

We are exploring whether – as in Ireland – development plans could be placed into a formal time scale. In Ireland each planning authority is required to publish notice of its intention to review its plan, not later than four years after the making of their existing plan. A new plan must be made every six years (ie. two years after this notice has been published). We think a close look at how the system works in Ireland , where it is operating under EU rules, would shed some light on whether this would work here.

We will be exploring this issue further and consulting with members in the coming months. If you have any views on this please contact [email protected]
