The Planning Act (Northern Ireland) 2011 requires the Council to publish a Plan Timetable which sets out the Council’s programme for the production of its Local Development Plan.
The Timetable sets out:-
- information about the main stages in the Local Development Plan process and the indicative timeframe that we are aiming for in meeting each stage;
- information on the Sustainability Assessment process that will run in parallel with the LDP process.
The Council (in accordance with the Planning (Local Development Plan) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 2015 Regulations) approved its revised Timetable in November 2018 which was agreed by the Department of Infrastructure in December 2018.
As there are many factors that could cause the Timetable to change the timeframe set out is indicative in nature. Progress against the Timetable will be monitored annually and the Council will publish further revisions to the timetable should this be considered necessary.
