A Development Plan sets out the land use zoning objectives for an area.
The land use zoning objectives for the County are set out over a series of 14 maps and an interactive webmap.
Certain uses which may be permitted in principle or open for consideration within each land use zone is set out Chapter 13 of the Development Plan.
Proposed development within an area occurs when a developer (public or private), or an individual, proposes and obtains the relevant planning permission. This ‘development management’ process is separate to the Development Plan making process. Proposed development is required to accord with the provisions of a Development Plan.
