Zoning Objectives (word .doc, 183 kbs)
. The Zoning Objectives and Landuse Zoning Matrix need to be used when looking at the individual settlement zonings.
The service base and community facilities of Knockanore include a school, church, health centre and public house. The GAA playing fields are to the northeast of the village.
The village is not served by a wastewater treatment system and the piped water supply does not extend to the entire zoned area. The council will require that all planning applications include proposals for the sustainable treatment of wastewater and include proposals 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.
There is a considerable landbank zoned for development (see Map). The constraints to development are associated with the infrastructural deficit as outlined above and development proposals will need to cater for this in any applications for permission along with satisfying the Planning Authority as to the standards for new development at Section 9.2.
