Accessibility requests when attending An Bord Pleanála events

Please contact us as soon as possible before visiting An Bord Pleanála if you or a member of your group has any access requirements so that we may facilitate you.

If you are attending an event some requests may take some time to organise. Therefore, we ask that you provide us with as much notice as possible and before the request deadline stated in the notice. Please note it may not be possible to facilitate requests for an event made after the request deadline due to the short time period available to organise the request.
