Planning Circular 5/2009: hierarchy of developments

We provide guidance on how the regulations that introduce the hierarchy of developments impact on each of the three tiers of the hierarchy, which are:

  • national developments
  • major developments
  • local developments

It explains how the hierarchy regulations should be applied across the three types of development.

More information

Circulars contain our policies on the implementation of legislation and procedures.

Statements of our policy in circulars may be considerations to take into account in development plans and development management decisions.
