12.11.4 Regional Roads

There are 421km of regional routes in the County.  Regional roads provide important strategic linkages within the county and to the national road network and other counties. In order to protect the investment in these roads and to maintain their strategic function it will be necessary to exercise control over new development requiring access to these roads by restricting new access points to a minimum in the interests of safety.

Development Management Requirements:

  • When considering speculative development which would impact Road capacity, the Planning Authority will follow a restrictive presumption of housing need in favour of maintaining road capacity.
