Planning
Objections and Submissions

Can I comment on any planning application?

The planning authority may only consider the proper planning and development of their area and the preservation and improvement of amenities, having regard to the provisions of their development plan. Therefore, the authority may only consider objections based on planning considerations and not those based on personal dislikes or grievances, non-planning issues associated with nuisance claims or legal disputes, etc. The "proper planning and sustainable development" of an area will generally relate to:
appropriate land use (zoning), adherence to established planning and development practices, preservation, improvement and extension of amenities, traffic safety, Development density, size, location etc. The development plan for the area will give an indication of relevant planning issues.

To whom do I make comment on a Planning Application or Decision?

You should address all comments, in writing, to the planning authority (Tipperary County Council). Every observation/comment/objection must quote the reference number allocated to the application by the authority and include a name and correspondence address and a fee of €20.

How will I know about a particular planning application?

An applicant for planning permission must publish notice of the application in a locally circulating newspaper (the planning authority has a list of approved newspapers which it accepts for the making of a public notice) and by erecting a site notice in a conspicuous position. An application must be received by the planning authority within 2 weeks of the newspaper notice. A site notice must be put up on or before the date you make the application and be kept in position, in a legible condition, for at least five weeks after its submission. If you think an application has been made, you can contact the planning authority about recent applications.

How long do I have to comment on a planning application?

Any comments on a planning application must be made within the first five weeks of an application, and a fee of €20 must be paid.

What access to planning information do I have?

You are entitled to view, free of charge, all documents submitted with a planning application at the planning authority's office during office hours from the date of receipt of the application until the decision is made on it. Internal reports on the application, prepared by or on behalf of the planning authority, can be viewed after the planning authority decision has been made, during the period for appeal. Copies of any Environment Impact Statement and of extracts from such a statement can be purchased for a reasonable fee. Planning decisions are available for public inspection for up to 7 years after a decision has been made on the application. Older files may be inspected on payment of a fee of €10. The planning register and map is the record of all planning applications, decisions, appeals, enforcement action etc. The register is open to public inspection, free of charge, at the planning authority offices during office hours.

What type of comments will not be considered?

Objections which are generally not planning related and which normally cannot be taken into account include:
disputes about property rights or location of boundaries, restriction of views from a property, where residential amenities are not affected (e.g. adequate light, overshadowing) - no one has a right to a particular view, trees, shrubs etc. overhanging a property.
If you have a complaint about any of the above, you should normally seek a remedy under civil rather than planning law. You may need to consult a solicitor about your rights in this context.Vexatious or frivolous comments will also be disregarded.

Who will see my comments?

All documents relating to an application, including your written comments, will be available for public inspection.

Will I be informed of the decision?

Yes. Anyone who has made written comments on a planning application within the first five weeks of an application and paid a fee of €20 must be informed by the planning authority of their decision within 3 days of making it. This will usually be done by post; but where a large number of comments have been received, the planning authority may issue notification by way of a public notice in a locally circulating newspaper within 7 days. A public notice is mandatory in the case of applications accompanied by an Environmental Impact Assessment Report.

How do I withdraw an objection?

There is no mechanism in the regulations for the withdrawal of an objection. You may however, make a further addition to your submission instructing the Planning Authority to disregard your original observation. This must be done as soon as possible, as we can only accept any form of submission on a planning application within the first five weeks. Both letters then remain on the file.

What can I comment on?

The planning authority may only consider the proper planning and development of their area and the preservation and improvement of amenities, having regard to the provisions of their development plan. Therefore, the authority may only consider objections based on planning considerations and not those based on personal dislikes or grievances, non-planning issues associated with nuisance claims or legal disputes, etc. The "proper planning and sustainable development" of an area will generally relate to:
appropriate land use (zoning), adherence to established planning and development practices, preservation, improvement and extension of amenities, traffic safety, Development density, size, location etc.
The development plan for the area will give an indication of relevant planning issues.

Will my comments be listened to?

Yes. In deciding an application the planning authority must take written comments on planning matters into consideration. Such comments must be received within the first five weeks of the application and the fee of €20 paid.
