Rural Needs Impact Assessments

Rural Needs Impact Assessments

The Rural Needs Act (Northern Ireland) 2016 requires the Council to have due regard to rural needs when:

  • developing, adopting, implementing or revising policies, strategies and plans
  • designing and delivering public services.

We are committed to undertaking rural needs impact assessments, monitoring activity and providing an annual report to the Department of Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs (DAERA).
