Can I get advice from the planning authority?

Prior contact with your local planning authority can be useful to confirm: • the documents (and the number of copies) which you must submit with your planning application; • the detail needed; • fee to be paid; and • public notice requirements, etc. All planning authorities must provide access to pre-application consultations within a reasonable period of a request being made under the provisions of Section 247 of the Planning and Development Act 2000 (as amended). It can be helpful to get the planning authority’s advice on particular aspects of the development plan that may influence the decision on the planning application. Every local authority office and website provides details of how to access this service and the terms and conditions which apply. This service is provided without prejudice to the planning authority’s final decision.
