1.0 Introduction
1.1 The promotion of a sustainable approach to development is now a major
tenet of Government policy. The Regional Development Strategy (RDS) for
Northern Ireland further recognises that the application of the principles of
sustainable development must also be at the heart of future rural
development, and in this respect a strategic objective is to:
“…conserve and enhance the environment, whilst improving the
quality of life of the rural communities and developing the rural
economy.”
1.2 In relation to Rural Northern Ireland, the overall aim of the RDS is to:
“…develop an attractive and prosperous rural area, based on a
balanced and integrated approach to the development of town, village
and countryside, in order to sustain a strong and vibrant rural
community, contributing to the overall well-being of the Region as a
whole.”
1.3 While the policies of this PPS apply to all of the countryside of Northern
Ireland, the rural area of Northern Ireland referred to above is more difficult
to define. What is recognised is, that it is a diverse area with a distinctive
settlement pattern, formed from a rich mosaic of main and small towns,
villages and individual dwellings that is unique within the UK
