2020 Opens Land Advice Surgeries

Settlement Boundaries NI

New Local Area Plans will change the face of settlement boundaries

2020 Architects have opened advice surgeries to all estate agencies and solicitor practices throughout Northern Ireland interested in protecting their client’s land under imminent land changes coming into effect in 2017.

All 11 Super Councils in Northern Ireland are currently undergoing a process of land zoning and de-zoning to establish future settlement boundaries.

For the first time in Northern Ireland, land owners are being urged to make representations to have their development land protected into the future, or promote their interest in having their land included in future settlement boundaries.

It is a representation that should not be taken for granted and failure to do so COULD mean your land is taken out of the settlement parameters.

Each Super Council will outline their proposal in a Preferred Options Paper, due to be published in 2017 which will be open for public consultation.  Mid-Ulster Council is the first Super Council to publish their ‘Preferred Options Paper’ and public representations must be made before the closing date on January 27th, 2017.

2020 Architects are advising Estate Agencies and Solicitor practices to take an active interest in protecting their client’s assets.  They have opened up surgeries to assist solicitors in best advising their clients.   

If you are a land owner in Northern Ireland and are interested in future-proofing the development status of your land then it is essential to register your interest at this stage.  Failure to do so could mean your land is eliminated for development potential.  Likewise, if you have land and would like it to be included for future development it is equally important to promote its inclusion.
