Availability of case files

Case files are normally available for inspection within three days after An Bord Pleanála has made the decision.

Older case files decided in the past two years are normally available for viewing within one to two working days. Case files decided more than two years ago and boxes containing drawings will take four to five working days to arrive back in our office.

 

Documents available online

For each case, you can view and download copies of these documents on our website for free:

  • Inspector's Report
  • Board Direction
  • Board Order
