Before you begin the planning application process, it is useful to familiarise yourself with the issues that will affect how your application will be assessed.
Pre Planning Guidance
The following Pre-Planning Guidance Documents have be prepared on some of the common planning application issues.
Document No. 1 General Planning is relevant to all prospective applicants. The relevance of the other documents will vary depending on the nature of your proposed development. You should review all the guidance documents to ensure you are aware of which are relevant to your proposal.
For clarification or assistance on the information within the above documents, please contact our office on 01-4149000 Ext 7161.
Consultations are available only to parties who have a legal interest in the site of the proposed development. If you do not have a legal interest in the proposed site, you must obtain letter of consent from the owner of the lands.
Pre-Planning Consultations do not provide confirmation that a proposed development is exempted development (i.e. planning permission is not required). For this you are required to submit a Section 5 Application for Declaration on Development and Exempted Development.
