New Planning Leaflet Launched on Large-scale Residential Development (LRD)

The OPR and the Department of Housing, Local Government and Heritage recently launched a new planning leaflet on the topic of Large-scale Residential Development (LRD). 

This leaflet explains LRD and the procedures involved in applying for planning permission for this type of development. The LRD application process was introduced to replace the Strategic Housing Development (SHD) application process. LRD applications are made directly to local authorities. 

Like all previously published leaflets this leaflet is full of practical advice and contains information on how best to engage with the planning system. 

Read and download the Large-scale Residential Development (LRD) leaflet here. 

The other 15 planning leaflets are available here.
