Where a project is being progressed by the Local Authority, planning permission is applied for under Part 8 of the Planning and Development Regulations 2001-2013.
This procedure requires that notice of the proposed development be given in the public press and that a site notice be erected.
If any submissions or observations are received, a report is presented to the members of the Council. This report contains a list of the objector’s names along with a summary of the points made by them and the Local Authority’s response.
Arising from consideration of the representations, the report sets out whether or not it is proposed to proceed as originally planned, or to proceed with a modified proposal.
Comments and observations on ‘Proposed Developments by a Local Authority’ can only be received in writing, and between certain dates. The public notices should be referred to in this regard to ascertain the final date of receipt for your observations.
