Determining what does and does not constitute development can get complicated when a development deviates from a planning permission and when environmental designations and legislation such as the Habitats Directive apply which influence permissible uses and ‘exempted development’.
HRA PLANNING have again demonstrated a fundamental understanding and practical application of Planning and Environmental law by securing a determination from An Bord Pleanála following a challenge to the opinion of a local planning authority on the matter.
The case put forward by HRA PLANNING as to the extent of development works undertaken for windfarm construction, was accepted and agreed by the appeals body despite the local planning authority having come to a different conclusion previously in their Section 5 declaration.
The case is an illustration of the role and function of HRA PLANNING in presenting clarity and robust interpretation of Planning, and environmental law procedures.
