General Information

Two copies of plans, forms, certificates and supporting statements are required to support any paper based submission to be numbered so they can be referred to on the decision notice.

All Plans must be to an identified metric scale (normally 1:50 or 1:100) must state the original paper size, show a north point and/or identify which direction elevations face and be named in a logical manner. When proposing new development they must include a scale bar and key dimensions.

As part of our registration process both our Administrative Team and our Development Control Team Leaders inspect applications received in detail. Requests for plans will be proportionate to the nature and scale of the proposal and information will only be required that adds to an understanding of the proposal. This being the case it would assist if an applicant/agent advises as to why they feel their submission is adequate and reflects the matter to hand.

Further guidance on 1APP is available on the National Planning Portal
