This Order amends the Planning (General Development Procedure) Order (Northern Ireland) 2015 by substituting a new schedule 3 to take account of the restructuring of Government Departments as a consequence of the Departments Act 2016 and the Departments (Transfer of Functions) Order (Northern Ireland) 2016. This reflects the consequent revised roles and responsibilities of planning authorities and statutory consultees in the development management process of the planning system. Consultation also regards, among other things, water pollution
Amends: Planning (General Development Procedure) Order (Northern Ireland) 2015 (S.I. No. 72 of 2015). (2015-02-25)

The United Kingdom has historically played a leading role in developing parliamentary democracy and in advancing literature and science. At its zenith in the 19th century, the British Empire stretched over one-fourth of the earth's surface. The first half of the 20th century saw the UK's strength seriously depleted in two world wars and the Irish Republic's withdrawal from the union. The second half witnessed the dismantling of the Empire and the UK rebuilding itself into a modern and prosperous European nation.
