. The Zoning Objectives and Landuse Zoning Matrix need to be used when looking at the individual settlement zonings.
Ballymacarbry is served by a public house, petrol filling station/garage, garda station, shop, Glanbia Supply Store and community hall and there is also has an industrial area on the northern side of the village. Other everyday services are available in both Dungarvan and Clonmel.
Ballymacarbry is served by public water and public sewer infrastructure. However at present the water supply and sewer have limited additional capacity.
Therefore the council will require that all housing estate planning applications include proposals for the sustainable treatment of wastewater and for the provision of an adequate water supply. Any such proposals should be discussed with the Sanitary Services Section of Waterford County Council prior to the submission of a planning application.
The council will encourage prospective developers to enter into partnership agreements to deliver the infrastructure that will facilitate estate development.
The development strategy for Ballymacarbry is as indicated on the Land Use Zoning Map. The policies and objectives of the Development Standards, included in Chapter 9, shall be used as guidelines to inform development proposals.
In order to ensure the settlement is protected from in-appropriately scaled residential development the council will require that the phasing of schemes reflects the capacity of the community to assimilate the development.
