Plans, drawing and maps

  • Plans and drawings (6 copies) (except for outline permission)
    Plans and drawings should contain detailed structural drawings of floor plans, elevations and sections and such other particulars as are necessary to describe the works or structure to which the application relates. These must be drawn to a scale not less that 1:200 or other such scale as may be agreed with the planning authority prior to the submission of the application. (1:50 and/or 1:100 may be acceptable)

  • Site location map (6 copies)
    The site location map must be marked or coloured so as to identify clearly the land or structure to which the application relates and the boundaries thereon. The location of the site notice must be clearly identified. The site location map must be on an Ordnance Survey map with the number of the Ordnance Survey map clearly indicated thereon, together with the north point. A copy of the maps with the current OS licence number on each map will also suffice. The scale of the map should be not less that 1:1000 in built-up areas and 1:2500 in all other areas or such other scale as may be agreed with the planning authority prior to the submission of the application. Ordnance Survey Ireland (OSi) has an online service which enables members of the public to purchase online the maps to be submitted with a planning application or alternatively maps can be obtained from a local OSi mapping agent.

  • Site/Layout Map (6 copies)
    The site boundary should be clearly marked in red and the plan should show buildings, boundaries, septic tanks and percolation areas, bored wells, services and other features in the vicinity of the land or structure to which the application relates. In this regard all features within 100m of the proposed development should be indicated. The position of the site notice should also be shown. The scale of the layout map should not be less than 1:500 or as agreed with the planning authority prior to submission of the application.

A full copy of the planning regulations is available on the planning legislation page.
