County Development Plan Objective
RCI 4-4: Stronger Rural Area
These rural areas generally have stable population levels based on a traditionally strong agricultural base. Therefore, in order to recognise these characteristics and to consolidate and sustain the stability of the rural population the site must comply with one of the following categories of housing:

a) Farmers, their sons and daughters who wish to build a
first home for their permanent occupation on the family
farm.
b) Persons taking over the ownership and running of a
farm on a full­time basis, who wish to build a first home
on the farm for their permanent occupation, where no
existing dwelling is available for their own use. The
proposed dwelling must be associated with the working
and active management of the farm.
c) Persons who have spent a substantial period of their
lives (i.e. over seven years), living in the local rural area
in which they propose to build a first home for their
permanent occupation.
d) Persons working full­time in farming, forestry, inland
waterway or marine related occupations, for a period
of over three years, in the local rural area where they
work and in which they propose to build a first home
for their permanent occupation.
e) Persons whose predominant occupation is farming /
natural resource related, for a period of over three
years, in the local rural area where they work and in
which they propose to build a first home for their
permanent occupation.
f) Persons whose permanent employment is essential to
the delivery of social and community services and
intrinsically linked to a particular rural area for a period
of over three consecutive years and who can
demonstrate an economic and social need to live in the
local rural area where they work, within which it is
proposed to build a first home for their permanent
occupation.
g) Returning emigrants who spent a substantial period of
their lives (i.e. over seven years), living in the local rural
area in which they propose to build a first home for
their permanent occupation, who now wish to return
to reside near other immediate family members
(mother, father, brother, sister, son, daughter or
guardian), to care for elderly immediate family
members, to work locally, or to retire

***Proof of funding is required in order to place a bid. Furthermore, surveys should be carried out prior to bidding.
