1.        Background

In 2005, the Planning Authority had approved a document which set out a planning policy framework for implementing the land use planning objectives of the Seveso II Directive. The purpose of this policy document was to control development close to installations which use or store hazardous substances, so as to reduce the number of people at risk and to reduce the likelihood and the extent of harm if an accident occurs.

The Seveso II Directive has been subsequently replaced by Seveso III Directive (EU Council Directive 2012/18/EC). As a result, the Planning Authority is obliged to carry out a review of the 2005 Supplementary Planning Policy Guidance on Major Accident Hazards and Hazardous Substances. For this reason, the Authority is publishing the objective for public consultation:
  • ​​​​To transpose and implement Article 13 of the Seveso III Directive
