Part VIII – What is it?
Part VIII planning applications are applications made by a local authority to the elected members of the local authority for works such as road projects. The planning application must be made in accordance with Part 8 of the Planning and Development Regulations 2001 (S.I. No. 600 of 2001).
A site notice must be erected on the subject site and submissions from prescribed bodies and the public may be received during a six week public consultation period.
Following consideration of the submissions received, the Manager presents a report to the elected members of the local authority for the approval of the scheme. The elected members decide as they consider appropriate, that the proposed development be carried out, with or without variations or modifications, or decide it will not be carried out.
