This report seeks to explore the interfaces between land-use planning (reforms) and community planning (innovation) in Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland – with a specific focus on the Irish border region. Recognising that there are vertical, horizontal and lateral dimensions to this potential interface between land-use and community planning, this report addresses a number of the emerging questions around culture, capacity and competence in executing the new governance arrangements on an integrated basis.
