FI request not received

    More than two weeks elapsed since decision date shown on a planning file. File also shows decision made to request FI on that decision date.

    But nothing either in writing or by email received by the applicant or agent! Is that unusual and would such correspondence be by registered post?

    Yes, it has to be by registered post. So long as the planning authority can show that they posted it before the 8 week deadline then its not its responsibility for delivery after that. However if they didnt send it within 8 weeks then thats a different story.

    Is the FI request displayed online and if so who is it addressed to?

    The file online shows it is addressed to the applicant (which was as requested). I suspect hat the correspondence might have been lost in the Covid staff confusion.

    Having said that, the FI is broadly positive - change to roof profile, moving entrance door etc. so my query is purely for understanding.

    It’s also possible the FI went out by email.

    im getting everything by email currently so check what email address was listed for contact details. DCC and Fingal ask you if correspondence can be sent digitally. SDCC is the same. DLR allowed me to submit FI by email recently too so the whole WFH has softened the process with the LA’s in a good way.
