Visually they add to an area, softening the impact of physical development on the landscape while also fulfilling an important role in the improvement of air quality in urban areas and providing wildlife habitats.
Require the use of native planting where appropriate in new developments in consultation with the Council. Ensure trees, hedgerows and other features which demarcate townland boundaries are preserved and incorporated where appropriate into the design of developments. Consider in tree selection the available rooting area and proximity to dwellings or business premises particularly regarding shading of buildings and gardens.

It is recognised that childcare must be of suitably high quality. Applications for childcare facilities in existing residential areas will be treated on their own merits, having regard to the likely effect on the amenities of adjoining properties, and compliance with the above criteria.
Detached houses or substantial semi-detached properties are most suitable for the provision of full day care facilities. For new residential developments, the most suitable facility for the provision of full day care should be a purpose built, ground floor, stand-alone property. Residential properties with childcare shall retain a substantial residential component within the dwelling, and shall be occupied by the operator of the childcare facility.
In assessing applications for new childcare facilities, the Planning Authority will consult with the Fingal County Childcare Committee to assess the need for the type of facility proposed at the intended location. Extensions to schools will generally be accepted where they will replace existing temporary classroom structures on site.
School extensions should be located having regard to adjoining amenities and amenities within the school site.
Chapter 12: Development management standards
Development proposals for the habitual use of a building as a place of public worship or religious instruction will be considered in the context of the land use zoning and the need to protect the amenities of established uses from impacts arising from traffic, noise or other disturbance. Planning applications for places of worship should be accompanied by details of the capacity of the facility e. Require that new or enlarged places of worship be located in places where they do not create unacceptable traffic congestion or car parking difficulties nor cause a nuisance to existing residents or businesses.
The Planning Authority will distinguish between small scale medical practices involving one to two principals i. Applications should involve professional medical commercial activities carried out by the resident of the building or, the premises should incorporate an otherwise occupied living unit. The operation of these premises shall not have negative impacts on the residential amenities of the surrounding area. Parking and access arrangements shall be as per Table Medical practices in residential areas shall be additions to the existing residential use of a dwelling and be subordinate to it.
Similar to childcare facilities in residential areas — small-scale medical practices should ideally be in larger and detached houses on their own grounds and with suitable and convenient access for those arriving by car, foot or public transport. They shall not have negative impacts in terms of generating overspill of car parking, traffic hazard, negative impact on adjoining residential uses, and shall complement the existing uses and buildings and should have only modest signage.

Exhaust flues, chimneys and vents should be integrated into the building, preferably located to the rear or side of buildings, appropriately screened and coloured to match the overall design of the attendant building. Ensure that the design and siting of any new Business Parks and Industrial Areas conforms to the principles of Design Guidelines as outlined in Table Retailing often has a social and civic focus in local neighbourhoods and villages.
Such developments should therefore achieve high quality design. They should be designed and sized to be appropriate in scale in relation to the planned catchment area. Local centres and rural villages are intended to cater for the daily shopping and service needs of the immediately surrounding areas and will consequently be generally small in scale. In dealing with applications in these local centres any analysis should take cognizance of changing shopping trends, the social and economic circumstances of the area and the retail strategy in Chapter 6.
Applications for new retail development shall accord with the requirements outlined in Chapter 6. The provision of new retail development shall be in accordance with the Fingal Retail Strategy in Chapter 6. Retail development shall be in accordance with the role and function of the retail centre and accord with the scale and type of retailing identified for that location. Retail development should be in accordance with the fundamental objective to support the vitality and viability of the retail centre and must demonstrate compliance with the sequential approach.
Proposals to amalgamate retail units will be carefully considered. Major retail proposals exceeding 1, sq. Fast food outlets have the potential to cause disturbance, nuisance and detract from the amenities of an area and as such, proposals for new or extended outlets will be carefully considered.

Petrol stations, while necessary, have the potential to cause disturbance, nuisance and detract from the amenities of an area and as such, proposals for new or extended outlets will be carefully considered. Motor fuel stations will not generally be encouraged within the core retail area of urban centres or in rural areas. The range of goods sold in both existing and any future retail parks will be tightly controlled and limited to bulky household goods or goods which are not portable by customers travelling by foot, cycle, or bus See Annex 1 of Retail Planning Guidelines for definitions of bulky goods.
In town and village centres, the size and scale of all new retail warehousing developments should be in accordance with the character of the area. Only permit retail warehousing on lands zoned for this purpose RW or Major Town Centre MC and where there is a clear evidence based need for such uses.

In addition proposals will be required to comply with the objectives of Chapter 6. Development proposals for small scale home based economic activities will be considered where the applicant is the resident of the house and can demonstrate that the proposed activity is subordinate to the main residential use of the dwelling. Proposals that adversely impact on the existing residential amenity of the area by way of increased traffic, noise, fumes, vibration, smoke, dust or odour will not generally be favourably considered. The Planning Authority will assess the suitability of the residential site to accommodate the proposed home based economic activity having regard to the size and scale of the site and dwelling, the prevailing density of the area, the availability of adequate safe car parking and the general compatibility of the nature of the use with the site context.
Home-based economic activity will generally be permitted on a short-term or temporary basis to enable an ongoing assessment of any impact of the activity on residential amenity. Permit home-based economic activities where the proposed activity is subordinate to the main residential use of the dwelling and does not adversely impact on the existing residential amenity of the area by way of increased traffic, noise, fumes, vibration, smoke, dust or odour.
