Viewing a decided case file: Public Access service
To view a decided case, our staff can help you to see case files and make photocopies of documents. We call this our Public Access service. It is not currently possible to view full decided case files on our website but we hope to introduce online case files in the future.
Public Access can assist you with:
|Public Access cannot assist you with:
Any current case that the Board has not decided or decided less than three days ago.
We regret that Public Access staff cannot discuss individual case files or decisions.
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

The full hard copy case files can be viewed by visiting our office on weekdays between 9.15 am to 5.30 pm.
