Well the Cork Rural Housing Guide is a very good document and it ticks a lot of the boxes with regards encouraging proper orientation, siting and landscaping amongst many others. Many of the principals set down by these guidelines – simplicity of form and reinterpretation of the quiet character of Irish vernacular houses- are shared across much of the country.

To be honest if all houses built in the Irish countryside were covered by a document like this we might be better off!

However, every decision made in the design of your house should be derived from its context and can be argued as such. If you ground every argument in a clear, sensible rationale it can be demonstrated to the planners that your design is a sensitive, logical, and hopefully a beautiful interpretation of the architecture of the locality.
