Supplement to Planning Application 

The Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Development Plan 2016-2022 was adopted 17th February, 2016. 

The enclosed thresholds which derive from the Plan, are intended as a guideline to assist applicants who intend on lodging planning applications for, generally:

  1. Commercial floor over 250sq.m or, educational/medical/community developments.  
  2. Residential development of one or more units. 

 

By assessing the Key Thresholds table and the main Thresholds List (found in the document on the right hand side) applicants will be informed as to what they may be required to submit as part of their planning application.  This could assist in the pre-application process and obviate the need for, or minimise, subsequent Further Information requests by the planning Authority.

This supplementary information is not a substitute for a Pre-planning meeting (which can be arranged by contacting the Planning Department, email:preplanning@dlrcoco.ie ) and it is advised that potential applicants familiarise themselves with the Thresholds Information Document prior to any such meeting.

This document identifies Development Management thresholds.  The list is not, however, intended to be exhaustive and it may also be subject to changes in response to variations to the Development Plan over time.

Note: Some thresholds for particular developments may be determined on a case-by-case basis by the Planning Authority, or by other specific requirements, and are therefore not listed in the Key Thresholds table.

FAQS

Submissions/observations must be made within 5 weeks beginning on the date of receipt of the planning application. The five week period commences on the day that a planning application is received, such that the last day for receipt for an objection to an application received on Tuesday 1 November is Monday 5 December. If the last day of this five week period falls on a Saturday, Sunday or Public Holiday, submissions/observations can be accepted on the next working day.
