New E-Planning System

    The Local Government Management Agency (LGMA) is currently rolling out the national e-Planning project, which aims to bring the planning application process online, thereby replacing the current requirement to submit applications and the associated multidue of documents such as maps, drawings etc. in hard copy.  The new e-planning portal ailms to improve efficiency, reduce the potential for invalid applications, and deliver on the government strategy to move more public services online.  

    Wicklow County Council have been selected to participate in the Wave 2 Rollout, commencing in mid January 2023.  Preparatory work is onging and, in conjunction with the LGMA, it is intended to move to the next steps in the process in the coming weeks.  

    This will be a fantastic tool for agents and individuals to utilise when submitting planning applications or submissions.  The benefits include:

    • Make planning applications to all local authorities from one portal
    • Reduce printing costs
    • Reduce the need to visit the planning office
    • Standardise the process across all planning authorities
    • Make submissions on planning applicaitons
    • View and make a submission on a Part 8
    • Pay on-line
