For example a booklet or web site that lists criteria such as min. distance from road center to house , min. dist from streams, overhead power lines etc, Also is there any info available on what grounds one can lodge an objection to proposed developments.
Homebond have publications available on appropriate guidelines for house building with some consideration to general planning law and DoE guidelines.
Also, many Local Authority's publish journals giving a rough guide to housing requirements (e.g. Cork County Council, Galway County Council and I think Meath County Council have such publications available at various news outlets).
Contact your local authority for such guidelines.
As for objections, it depends on your situation or relation to the subject proposal.
