4.12  Core Strategy Table

The implementation of the NPF and RSES at the County level will:

  • Promote the sustainable development of rural areas of the county,
  • Promote the sustainable growth of Waterford City, Kilkenny as a Key Town and significant regional driver, the District Towns, and smaller settlements and rural areas within the County,
  • Ensure adequate lands are zoned to provide for the population projections as contained in the Roadmap for the Implementation of the NPF and Appendix 1 of the RSES for the Southern Region,
  • Ensure that at least 30% of future housing as targeted is delivered within the existing footprint of Kilkenny City and the District Towns and 50% within the Waterford MASP area.
  • Base zoning on a tiered approach as defined in the NPF, with:
    •  Tier 1 being serviced lands and
    •  Tier 2 being lands that are potentially fully serviceable within the lifetime of the plan
  • Avoid the overprovision of zoned lands,
  • Avoid the potential of unsustainable leapfrogging of undeveloped lands

In line with the NPF Implementation Roadmap’s requirement for an infrastructure assessment and Tier 1 and Tier 2 considerations for future zoning, it is important to note that the Loughmacask area of the City, which includes extant permissions on 19.23Ha of zoned lands outside the CSO boundary, is dependent on wastewater investment to realise the existing permissions. (See Core Strategy for Kilkenny City Volume 2 Section 2.2.)
