Viewing a Planning Application

Planning applications may be viewed online here. Please note that for all previous County Council applications, electronic versions of all applications received from 1st January 2004 are available to view, whilst for previous City Council & Dungarvan Town Council applications, electronic versions are available from 1st January 2006 onwards.

Planning application files (both current and archived) may be viewed in person at the following two office locations:

Planning Department Planning Department
Waterford City & County Council Offices Waterford City & County Council Offices
The Menapia Building Civic Offices
The Mall Davitt’s Quay
Waterford City Dungarvan

However, please note that in the instance where the final grant of permission has not yet been issued on an application, the planning file may only be viewed in the Menapia Building. Also, planning application files prior to 2010 are in off-site archive facilities and must therefore be ordered for viewing. Such archived files can generally be made available within one week of a request. Please note that there is a €12.00 fee to retrieve a file from archives.

To view a file, please initially contact us on, stating which file numbers you wish to view and where you would like to view the file (either at our offices in Waterford City or Dungarvan), leaving us your telephone number. We will contact you when the file(s) are ready to be viewed. Retrieval fees are due on the day that you view the file(s). If you need photocopies of the full application file or parts of it, this can be arranged for you. Our copying fees are available here.
