Certain rules apply to planning permission applications. According to the Citizen’s Information Ireland website, you must give a public notice of your proposals before making the application, through a site notice and a local newspaper. The local authority must receive the application within 2 weeks of the newspaper notice, and the site notice must be put up either before or on the date of the application and must remain in place for at least 5 weeks.* You should not start the build before the granting of permission. Some conditions may apply to your planning and this may mean changes to your proposal and a limited time of 5 years usually applies to any application. If your planning is refused, you will be given the reasons for refusal and will have the opportunity to appeal the decision.
