Your property / structure has been recommended for inclusion onto the Record of Protected Structures “in order to protect a structure, or part of a structure, of special architectural, historical, archaeological, artistic, cultural, scientific, social or technical interest” (Section 54 of the Planning and Development Act, 2000, as amended).
A letter issued to owners/occupiers of properties added to the RPS in the Draft Plan states whether the recommendation was made by the Minister for Housing, Local Government and Heritage or by the Planning Authority.
Properties / structures recommended for addition by the Minister resulted from surveys carried out for part of the County. More specific details for a particular structure can be found in the surveys of the National Inventory of Architectural Heritage: here.
Properties / structures recommended for addition by the Planning Authority were the result of either - submissions received at pre-draft stage (see pre-draft CE Report for details), Motions from Elected Members (see Special Meetings from December 15-18th 2020), the property / structure was brought to our attention during the preparation of the current County Development Plan 2016-2022 or when dealing with planning applications since the adoption of the current Plan.
Further details with regard to Protected Structures can be found here on the Conservation section of our website.
