County Roscommon Rural Design Guidelines by Roscommon County Council
The rural design guide has been prepared to assist people in making a planning application for the refurbishment of an existing dwelling, replacement of a dwelling as well as the construction of a new dwelling in the countryside. The guide shows the importance of good siting and sensitive rural housing design when building in the countryside. The guide does not aim to assert generic responses to the rural countryside instead it highlights to users, the benefit of appropriate design in relation to issues of siting, orientation, local materials and building elements.
It is recognised that both traditional and modern design can inspire and develop attractive buildings that contribute to the landscape and the rural character of the area. The guide aims to inspire contemporary design that is uniquely Irish in origin in a way that is authentic, creative and a worthy contribution to the built heritage for County Roscommon.
