Implementation of Regional Planning Guidelines. Best Practice Guidance


Regional Planning Guidelines have been part of Ireland's planning policy framework since 2004 and, taking account of experience since then and the requirements of the Planning and Development (Amendment) Act 2010, new Regional Planning Guidelines for the 2010-2022 period have been adopted by each of the Regional Authorities. The development of the 2010 Regional Planning Guidelines was made possible by the proactive approaches of regional and local authorities who have adopted far-seeing and complementary documents with the support of the Department of the Environment, Heritage and Local Government.
