​​​​​​4.1 Introduction

The Planning and Development Act 2000, as amended, requires the written statement of a Development Plan to contain a Core Strategy which shows that the development objectives in the development plan are consistent, as far as practicable, with national and regional development objectives set out in the National Planning Framework (NPF) and the Regional Spatial and Economic Strategy (RSES).  The Core Strategy will set out an evidence-based rationale for the settlement hierarchy for the Plan area and give details on:

  1. Defining a settlement hierarchy for the County that is consistent with the NPF and RSES for the Southern Region.
  2. Transposing the prescribed NPF and RSES housing and population targets set at County level for the rural and urban centres identified within the settlement hierarchy.
  3. An evidenced based rationale for the zoning of lands.
  4. Demonstrating how the Planning Authority has had regard to the statutory Retail Planning Guidelines in setting out objectives for retail development.
  5. Classification of roads within the Plan area.
  6. Inter urban commuter rail routes.
  7. Rural areas where the Sustainable Rural Housing Guidelines apply.
