Part 8 Developments

Part 8's - Local authority own development

Where a project is being progressed by the Local Authority, planning permission is applied for under Part 8 of the Planning and Development Regulations 2001-2015, and the procedure is set out in Part 11, Section 179 of the Planning and Development Act 2000 as amended.

This procedure requires that notice of the proposed development be given in an approved newspaper and that a site notice be erected on the land on which the proposed development would be situated.

After the expiration of the period during which submissions or observations may be made, a report is presented to the members of the Council. This report contains, amongst other items, a list of the persons or bodies who made submissions, along with a summary of the issues raised by them and the Chief Executive's response. This report recommends whether or not the proposed development should be proceeded with as proposed, or should not be proceeded with.

Following consideration of the Report, the proposed development may be carried out as recommended in the Report, unless the local authority, by resolution, decides to vary or modify the development, otherwise than as recommended in the Report, or decides not to proceed with the development. The timeframe for the Part 8 process is set out below.
