Fee-per-case Planning Inspectors

Fee-per-case Planning Inspectors

An Bord Pleanála is considering engaging planning inspectors on a Fee-Per-Case basis as provided for under the Planning and Development Act 2000, as amended. These inspectors will not be employees.

Nature of Work
Fee-per-case planning inspectors will generally deal with planning appeals and other cases within relevant timescales. The main duties will involve site inspections, preparing reports including assessment and recommendations to the Board. If appointed, no undertaking will be given in relation to the actual number of cases assigned.

The fee per case payable will be €544. Overall payment of fees is subject to certain restrictions in the case of persons in receipt of a State pension and subject to withholding tax.

An Bord Pleanála would like to hear from suitably qualified persons who hold a professional qualification in planning recognised by the Irish Planning Institute or the Royal Town Planning Institute and since qualifying, have a minimum of 5 years relevant planning experience and wish to be considered in the event that An Bord Pleanála decides to engage fee-per-case inspectors.

Expressions of interest with a CV should be sent to Mr. Gavin Duffy, Human Resources, An Bord Pleanála by e-mail to by 15th September 2022.
