Can I appeal a Regulatory Decision of the competent authority?
ANCA’s Regulatory Decision must be incorporated into the planning authority’s decision on the application regardless of whether the planning authority’s decision is to refuse or to grant the application.
The decision of the Planning Authority may be appealed to An Bord Pleanála by 'any person who made submissions or observations in writing in relation to the planning application to the planning authority' includes any person who made submissions or observations to ANCA in relation to the draft regulatory decision or related report in this consultation .
