HRA PLANNING are advancing a number of planning applications being made under the new ‘Strategic Housing Development’ mechanism introduced under the Planning and Development (Housing) and Residential Tenancies Act 2016.
These Planning applications for housing developments of more than 100 residential units
(and 200 plus student bed spaces) can now be made directly to An Bord Pleanála instead of first having to seek planning permission from the local Planning Authority. There are a number of requisite stages in the process including ‘pre-planning’ consultation with both the Planning Authority and An Bord Pleanala and the proponent / developer must demonstrate in their proposal, compliance with planning provisions.
In response, HRA PLANNING are providing a project management service of the ‘Strategic Housing Development’ Application process including; formulating the planning application strategy; undertaking the statutory consultation; advising on the necessary ‘environmental’ assessments, and, providing the statement of ‘planning compliance’.
