Building & Planning

A Building & Planning assessment typically involves consideration of the development site and surrounding land, and issues such as the proposed appearance, setbacks, car parking, overlooking and overshadowing.  In making an assessment, the ‘pros’ and ‘cons’ of an application will be weighed up and, in some cases, a proposed development may receive Planning Consent despite not meeting all the relevant Development Plan policies.

The guides and information sheets below will help you to determine if you need to submit a Development Application before proceeding with a building or development proposal.  The guides also provide you with important information about what documentation, plans and the like need to be submitted with a development application.
