Dublin Surveys planning team undertake the full process of design and application from a single dwelling house, multiple dwellings or planning permission for extensions to your existing property or commercial enterprise.
Prior to the planning application being lodged an advert is placed with a local paper that is approved by the council. Once the planning notice advert is placed there is a time frame of two weeks to lodge the application.
When the planning application is lodged to the planning section of any county council it is validated and a period of 8 weeks under planning law must go through before a decision is reached. 4 weeks after the initial decision is realised the final decision is posted to the consultant handling the application.
When the local council planning department are in favour of the development and decide to grant. Every decision to grant is accompanied with conditions of planning that a development must comply with in order for an appointed consultant to issue a Certificate of compliance at successful completion of works.
This is where the decision after the final four weeks of the planning is granted the client must give 14 days notice to the
planning authority to commence works in the form of a one page application in where all councils have there own template.
The council’s planner may require more information in the form of a specialist report, clarification of submitted information, request a change in the design, omit or add in a design change. Usually if the information is dealt with properly, this can lead to a decision to grant permission.
The council’s decision may be based on the development plan or not in keeping with the zoning of the area. Reasons will be listed from correspondence from the council outlining the issues. In some situations these may be reviewed by the consultant and client and a further application can be submitted.
On the advice of the consultant a further option of appealing to An Board Pleanla to overturn the council’s decision may be options available to clients.
