03/02/2021

The Department for Infrastructure has published information on planning applications recommended for refusal by planning officers and approved by planning committee, for each local authority in the period from April 2018 to March 2019.

Of the 114 cases where this occurred, 28 were in Causeway Coast & Glens, 27 were in Fermanagh and Omagh and 22 in Newry, Mourne & Down. Zero cases were reported from Belfast and eight were reported from Derry City & Strabane Council. This information will be of interest in establishing the likely impact of recommended refusals across local authorities in Northern Ireland.
