Observation SHD (Prescribed Bodies): Sending observation by post or delivering it in person

This page explains how a prescribed body can send an observation on a SHD application by post or deliver it in person

Sending us the observation by post or delivering it in person

Where do I send or deliver my observation?
You can:

  • post it to: Strategic Housing Unit, An Bord Pleanála, 64 Marlborough Street, Dublin 1, D01 V902, or
  • deliver it in person to a member of An Bord Pleanála staff at our office in Marlborough Street (address above) during office hours – Monday to Friday from 9.15am to 5.30pm. Please note that the security staff in our office cannot accept observations, or
  • put it into the letterbox at our office outside office hours.

We are closed on weekends, public holidays and other publicised days such as Christmas Day and Good Friday.

Can I get a receipt if I deliver my observation in person?
Yes. If you deliver your observation in person to our office, you can ask for a receipt which says that we have received your observation. When your observation is handed to a member of An Bord Pleanála staff, we cannot return it nor can we make a photocopy of your documents with our date stamp. A receipt does not mean that your observation is valid. We will write to you separately to tell you if your observation is valid or invalid.
