Part 8 (Public Consultation Schemes)
Most developments by a local authority itself, are subject to a public consultation process as set out in the Planning & Development Regulations, 2001 - 2012. This procedure requires that notice of the proposed development be given in the public press and that a site notice be erected. If any submissions or observations are received, a report is presented to the members of the Council. This report contains a list of the objector's names along with a summary of the points made by them and the Local Authority's response.
Arising from consideration of the representations, the report sets out whether or not it is proposed to proceed as originally planned or to proceed with a modified proposal.
