PPS21 – Planning Permission in Northern Ireland
PPS-21 is a set of rules introduced by the Planning Service to create more opportunities for development sites within the countryside. PPS-21 is an amended set of rules to replace the old PPS-14.

PPS21 sets out planning policies for all of NI with the exception of town/village boundaries.
