Re: Re: Planners…….
Also, again something you probably already know, but I’d suggest taking a look at Cork CoCo’s Rural Housing Guide – it’ll give you an excellent idea of what the council are looking for and you can roll it out to support your design when you submit.
Why does everyone refer to Cork CoCo rural house guidlines as the be all and end all of rural planning guidlines.
It is an excellent document that suits west cork but i live in Wicklow. Because the planners salivate over every utterance from this manual I am stuck with a 7m height restriction too.
There is no native house within 5 miles of my site that resembles anything akin to West Cork Rural house guidlines yet this is the standard i must adhere too. All the native houses in my area are natural stone, 2 story buildings. I will post pictures to the forum later.
Any thoughts from Architects?
