Unauthorised Development

The Planning Authority, in accordance with the statutory requirements under the Planning and Development Acts, 2000-2006 will seek to secure compliance with planning controls and prevent unauthorised development.

Unauthorised development is where development is carried out without having received the appropriate planning permission or development not being carried out in compliance with the permission issued.   The Planning Authority will monitor development in the County to check if planning conditions are complied with or if permission has been granted in the first instance.   The Planning Authority will follow up on all written complaints of unauthorised development where they appear to be well founded.   Declarations of Exempted Development will be issued by the Planning Authority, where applicable.  Such applications should be accompanied by drawings of the development and the appropriate fee.
