OK so I realise there are some threads elsewhere about planning contributions but I have a specific query that hopefully someone has the answer to.
I was asked the question by a client with a small house in Meath. If applying for an extension will he be liable for planning contributions. I rang the council and asked the girl who answered this question and she told me that it was liable for contributions at the same rate as a new build. This was different than what I had thought it would be so I checked the Meath Co. council website. I found there the schedule of charges link here
In the relevant section here (Meath County Council as opposed to any of the town councils) it states on page 15 under the section on residential development "House extensions shall be exempt."
All of which has left me looking for someone with a definitive view on this.
Is a house extesion exempt from contributions in Meath or not?
