Planning Act (Northern Ireland) 2011

Section 213 Urgent Crown development and section 214 Urgent works relating to listed buildings on Crown land

Section 213 covers instances where development by Crown bodies will be considered to be of significant public importance and require the processing of applications more quickly than permitted by the processing procedures of councils. The new powers aim to streamline the process and provide for the direct submission of planning applications to the Department. A similar procedure is introduced for urgent works to a listed building on Crown land.
