  • Planning and Development (Amendment) (No. 3) Regulations 2011

    These Regulations came into effect on 21st September, 2011 and relate to substitute consent*, sub-threshold planning applications (EIS) and Natura Impact Statements.

    The Regulations also brought in new requirement for Site Notices with the following wording to be included:

    “… and such submissions or observations will be considered by the planning authority in making a decision on the application. The planning authority may grant permission subject to or without conditions, or may refuse to grant permission.”

     There are also minor changes to the Planning Application Form

     * Substitute Consent is a mechanism whereby a person can apply for retrospective permission for a project that would have required an Environmental Impact Assessment, Screening for Environmental Impact Assessment or Appropriate Assessment, as appropriate.
