What is ePlan?
How long does it take to get planning permission?In most cases the Notification of Decision will issue no later than 8 weeks after the date of application. However, in some cases the Planning Authority may request additional information if the information originally provided by the applicant is deemed to be insufficient. In such cases the Notification of Decision will not occur until at least four weeks after the required additional information has been provided. In the case of applications which are not refused, the Notification of Grant of Permission will issue approx. 5 weeks after the date of the initial Notification of Decision. In summary, in the case of applications which are not refused and which are not subject to a request for further information, the Notification of Grant of Permission will issue approx. 13 weeks after the date of application.
