Planning Regulations 2015
1 April 2015
Northern Ireland - planning / hazardous substances
The Planning (Hazardous Substances) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 2015 revokes and remakes the Planning (Hazardous Substances) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 1993, as amended under the Planning Act (Northern Ireland) 2011. Quantities of hazardous substances requiring planning hazardous substance consent remain unchanged, but consenting provisions are transferred to councils from the Department of the Environment.
These regulations do not implement the land-use planning requirements of the Seveso III Directive (2012/18/EU), which will apply across the UK from June 2015.
