This page explains for applicants what options are available if you are dissatisfied with the Board's decision.

9 Appeal and Review of Decision

There is no appeal against the decision of the Board on an application to carry out strategic infrastructure development. Its validity may only be challenged by way of judicial review in the High Court within 8 weeks. The Court will not re-open the planning merits of the case and may only give leave to pursue the review process where it is satisfied that there are substantial grounds for contending that the Board's decision is invalid or ought to be quashed and that the person seeking the judicial review has a sufficient interest in the matter. When issuing its decision, the Board provides information in relation to judicial review procedures.
