Re: Re: Can an Architect apply for planning for client ?
Can an Architect apply for permission on behalf of a client where the client does not want to put his name and details etc on the forms etc.
I remember somewhere that the R.I.A.I. do not allow this.
Any help would be appreciated.
The RIAI would require their members to uphold the law.
It is a requirement of planning law that the applicant’s name be published
The applicant’s name must be on the planning documents and must be stated in the public notices.
However the other contact details of the applicant are not made available with the planning application.
Even using a limited company requires its particulars, including the names and addresses of its directors to be given.
If you are not the legal owner, you are required to state the name and address of the owner and include a letter of consent.
This planning application form from Dun Laoghaire Rathdown County Council should clarify matters for you
This page gives other relevant forms such as site notices and sample newspaper notice wording – marks out of ten for spotting the inconsistencies.
