Planning application process
The information below sets out the main stages that are normally involved in the determination of a planning application. It is intended to provide a broad overview and timescale. It is not intended to cover every eventuality and other issues may arise which require additional steps or time.
There are also circumstances in which a slightly different process is followed (e.g. for other types of applications, where the Department is the applicant/landowner or where an application is referred to the Council of Ministers).
