Learning Resources - Development Economics and Viability

The Government is committed to building the development economics and viability skills of planning authorities and others who are involved in bringing development to fruition. The below resources are designed to provide a working knowledge of development economics and viability, with accompanying policy context, and to assist with clarifying terminology commonly used by the development sector.

These are stage one, of a suite of resources - there will be more coming in later months. And we will be also distributing a print version of these in the coming weeks.

Legislation requires public consultation to be undertaken as part of the decision making process for planning applications. Publishing information online provides the public with an opportunity to engage with the process in a way that is convenient to them. The advice in this document replaces paragraphs 23 to 47 of PAN 70: Electronic Planning Service Delivery (2008) and supersedes the Data Protection Guidance for Planning Authorities published in September 2008.
