​​​​​​13.1 Introduction

Development Management will be exercised by the Council in a positive manner having regard to the provisions of the Planning & Development Act, 2000-2019, and to the proper planning and sustainable development of the County, its amenities and the Council’s policies and objectives.

It is intended that reference to these standards will provide guidance and assistance to those who seek permission for development.  However, it should not be assumed that compliance with the standards contained herein will automatically or necessarily result in a granting of planning permission, since the standards are merely a statement of general principles. Decisions regarding individual applications for development will be determined on a case-by-case basis in accordance with circumstances at the time an application is submitted.  Applicants are advised to consult with the Planning Authority prior to the preparation of detailed plans. 

There may be instances where a conflict will arise between various objectives in this Plan, and in such cases all issues will be assessed in the interests of the proper planning and sustainable development of the County.
