Limerick City Planning Application Documents Go On-Line

Monday, January 19th, 2009

From today, members of the public will be able to view planning application documents in the comfort of their own homes with the launch of a new on-line planning system by Limerick City Council.

Limerick City planning application files have been on-line since 2003 but this new system allows anyone with internet access to view details of all associated documents such as application forms, drawings and decision notices.

Speaking at the announcement of the new facility, John Field, Director of Services for the Planning Department said Limerick City Council is committed to developing its on-line services.

“Up to now members of the public had to physically come into City Hall to view a planning file,” Mr Field explained. “With this new system, an entire planning file will be uploaded within seven days of an application being received by Limerick City Council and ready to view on-line which makes it more convenient and straightforward for members of the public to view from their own computers.”

Members of the public can view planning documents and drawings on-line by logging on to Limerick City Council’s website,

By clicking “View Planning Applications On-Line”, the public can find a planning application through a planning file reference number, the applicant name or the development address. 
They can also view planning application lists through a listing of received applicants, decision due applicants or decisions made applicants.

 “The new service is fast and easy to access and most importantly, user friendly,” Mr Field continued. “The files will be updated daily and I’m confident that it will make the planning process ultimately more efficient.”
