Planning and Development


The planning system includes a comprehensive appeals process.

Under this, all planning decisions made by the Planning Authority may be subject to independent review by An Bord Pleanála. 

Please access the printable "Guide to Making an Appeal here".

This leaflet gives details of the main features of the appeal process and is intended as a practical guide to the procedures under the Planning and Development Act 2000, as amended. It is not a definitive legal interpretation of the planning law. This Guide does NOT deal with direct applications to the Board for planning permissions/approvals in respect of strategic infrastructure development. See separate guide for those procedures.

Further information is available from your local Planning Authority, online at An Bord Pleanála or at the following address:
