In general, you will need planning permission for any development of land or property, unless the development is specifically exempted from this requirement. The term 'development' includes the carrying out of works (building, demolition, alteration) on land or buildings and the making of a material, that is significant, change of use of land or buildings.
This is intended as a practical guide only. It is not a definitive legal interpretation of planning law. For more information, please contact the Planning Authority using the contact information at the bottom of this page.
