Part 8 Planning Applications – Development by Waterford City & County Council
Development carried out by a Local Authority is often referred to as 'Part 8” development. This is reference to Part 8 of the Planning and Development Regulations 2001 (as amended) which sets out the procedure for carrying out such developments. Such works would include developments such as the construction of houses, roads, swimming pools, public toilets etc.
Public consultation is a fundamental element of the 'Part 8' planning application process. This consultation 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 Elected Members of the Council. This report contains a list of the persons or bodies who made submissions, a summary of the issues raised in these submissions and the Local Authority's response to these issues. 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.
Please be advised that, currently, comments and observations on 'Proposed Developments by a Local Authority' can only be received in writing, and between certain dates. The public notices should be referred to in this regard to ascertain the final date of receipt for your observations.
