Chapter 13: Land Use Zoning

Dúntadate_range24 Fea, 2022, 9:00am - 12 Bea, 2022, 11:59pm

13.1  Introduction

The purpose of zoning is to indicate the land use objectives for all the lands within the County. Zoning aspires to promote the orderly development of the County by eliminating potential conflicts between incompatible land uses and to establish an efficient basis for investment in public infrastructure and facilities.

Zoning policy must also have regard to the strategic policies underlying the Development Plan.These include the principles of sustainable development and of consolidation, the integration of land-use and transportation planning, and the maintenance of the quality of life within the County as a whole.

Each land use zoning objective has a supporting vision which elaborates on the zoning objective and sets the context for the type of development which would be acceptable. Uses which are neither ‘Permitted in Principle’ nor ‘Not Permitted’ will be assessed in terms of their contribution towards the achievement of the zoning objective and vision.

The technical guidance notes to be used in the context of the adopted use classes are found in Appendix 7.

Objective ZO1 – Zoning Objectives and Vision

Secure the implementation of the zoning objective and vision applied to each area of the County.

13.2  Transitional Zonal Areas

The Development Plan maps show the boundaries between zones. While the zoning objectives and control standards indicate the different uses permitted in each zone, it is important to avoid abrupt transitions in scale and use in the boundary areas of adjoining land use zones.In dealing with development proposals in these contiguous transitional zonal areas, it is necessary to avoid developments that would be detrimental to the amenities of the more environmentally sensitive zone. For instance, in zones abutting residential areas or abutting residential development within predominantly mixed-use zones, particular attention must be paid to the use, scale and density of development proposals in order to protect the amenities of residential property.

Objective ZO2 - Transitional Zonal Areas

Have regard to development in adjoining zones, in particular, more environmentally sensitive zones, in assessing development proposals for lands in the vicinity of zoning boundaries.

1.3  Non-Conforming Uses

Throughout the County there are uses which do not conform to the zoning objective of the area. These are uses which were in existence on 1st October 1964, or which have valid planning permissions, or which are un-authorised but have exceeded the time limit for enforcement proceedings. Reasonable intensification of extensions to and improvement of premises accommodating these uses will generally be permitted subject to normal planning criteria.

Objective ZO3 – Non-Confirming Uses

Generally, permit reasonable intensification of, extensions to and improvement of premises accommodating non-conforming uses, subject to normal planning criteria.

13.4  Ancillary Uses

Planning permission sought for developments which are ancillary to the parent use, i.e. they rely on the permitted parent use for their existence and rationale, should be considered on their merits irrespective of what category the ancillary development is listed in the zoning objectives, vision and use classes section of this chapter.

Objective ZO4 – Ancillary Uses

Ensure that developments ancillary to the parent use of a site are considered on their merits.

 

13.5  Zoning Objectives, Vision and Use Classes

ZONING OBJECTIVE “GB” GREENBELT

Objective

Protect and provide for a Greenbelt.

Vision

Create a rural/urban Greenbelt zone that permanently demarcates the boundary (i) between the rural and urban areas, or (ii) between urban and urban areas. The role of the Greenbelt is to check unrestricted sprawl of urban areas, to prevent coalescence of settlements, to prevent countryside encroachment and to protect the setting of towns and/or villages. The Greenbelt is attractive and multifunctional, serves the needs of both the urban and rural communities, and strengthens the links between urban and rural areas in a sustainable manner. The Greenbelt will provide opportunities for countryside access and for recreation, retain attractive landscapes, improve derelict land within and around towns, secure lands with a nature conservation interest, and retain land in agricultural use. The zoning objective will have the consequence of achieving the regeneration of undeveloped town areas by ensuring that urban development is directed towards these areas.

ZONING OBJECTIVE “LC” LOCAL CENTRE

Objective

Protect, provide for and/or improve local centre facilities.

Vision

Provide a mix of local community and commercial facilities for the existing and developing communities of the County. The aim is to ensure local centres contain a range of community, recreational and retail facilities, including medical/ dental surgeries and childcare facilities, at a scale to cater for both existing residential development and zoned undeveloped lands, as appropriate, at locations which minimise the need for use of the private car and encourage pedestrians, cyclists and the use of public transport. The development will strengthen local retail provision in accordance with the County Retail Strategy.

ZONING OBJECTIVE “WD” WAREHOUSING AND DISTRIBUTION

Objective

Provide for distribution, warehouse, storage and logistics facilities which require good access to a major road network within a good quality environment.

Vision

Facilitate logistics and warehouse type activity including storage, distribution and associated re-packaging of goods and products. Distribution and storage uses have specific transportation requirements as they can generate considerable traffic volumes and hence benefit from being located within a purpose built, well designated environment which is well connected to the strategic road network and allows for the efficient movement of goods.
