Reply To: planning permission query
The County development plan should have a list of the types of buildings which are allowed within each zone (under headings like ‘normally permissible’ and ‘open to consideration’) – at least that’s the way it’s set out in the Dublin Development plans.
Development plans and their maps are available to be looked at in libraries and county offices and some counties have them on the internet.
These are guidelines, not guarantees – the only way to find out whether something will be allowed for definite is to make a planning application. It is sometimes possible to agree a site sale subject to planning permission.
Judging by the description of the zoning heading you described being allowed to build sounds unlikely, but I don’t know.
The estate agent is either a total chancer or total idiot.
