Since 1964 all significant development in this country has required planning permission (if not exempted by law). The area of planning and development has become increasingly more stringent and the ongoing changes in planning legislation means that it is ever more difficult to achieve compliance.
Planning applications are subject not only to the scrutiny of the local authority. The process also allows for the public in general to be put on notice of any proposed changes to the planning permission in existence or any applications for retention.
We have acted successfully on behalf of both applicants and objectors in various planning disputes and appeals to the local authority and An Bord Pleanala. We are happy to extend our expertise in this area and provide legal advice to businesses and individuals on the area of planning law.
