Notice of Proposed Material Alterations to Variation No. 1 to;
- Waterford City Development Plan 2013 – 2019
- Waterford County Development Plan 2011 – 2017
- Dungarvan Town Development Plan 2012 – 2018
Notice is hereby given pursuant to Section 13 of the Planning & Development Acts 2000 as amended and Article 13 of the Planning and Development (Strategic Environmental Assessment) Regulations 2004 as amended and Article 6 of the Habitats Directive 92/43/EEC, that the Members of Waterford City & County Council having considered Proposed Variation No. 1 to the Waterford City Development Plan 2013-2019, Waterford County Development Plan 2011-2017 and the Dungarvan Town Development Plan 2012-2018, and the Chief Executive Report thereon have resolved that Proposed Variation No.1 relating to the above Plans be altered. The proposed modifications constitute a material alteration of the Draft Variation.
The likely significant effects on the environment of implementing the proposed material alterations have been assessed. The Planning Authority has determined that neither a Strategic Environmental Assessment nor Appropriate Assessment is required to be carried out with respect to the proposed material alterations.
The purpose of the Variation is primarily to delete the existing Development Management Chapter contained in each Development Plan being Chapter 13 of the Waterford City Development Plan, and Chapter 10 in both the Waterford County Development Plan and Dungarvan Town Development Plan (except for specific sections relating to Zoning Objectives and Land Use Matrix in the Waterford County Development Plan and Dungarvan Town Development Plan which will remain in effect) and replace these chapters with a new Development Management Chapter in order to bring about uniform development management standards to apply across the complete Planning Authority area of Waterford City & County Council during the remaining lifespan of these existing Development Plans.
A copy of the proposed material alterations to the Draft Variation No. 1 to each of the above listed Development Plans together with the Strategic Environmental Assessment Screening report and the Appropriate Assessment Screening report with respect to the proposed material alterations will be available for inspection from Wednesday the 15th of June 2016 to 5pm on Wednesday the 13th of July 2016 at the following locations;
