Anyone know if there is a public site to view Planning Enforcement decisions? I know that DCC have a section to view planning applications but can't find anything with regard to PE decisions.
Call them and ask.
They're not currently taking calls .....
Ah jasus, still covid vibe I guess. Best of luck so.
Can you make an appointment to go in? I've done that to get plans during covid.
How long after retention was refused do you have to remove offending structure
it varies but the details and timetable would have been advised to the owner/builder.
No is the short answer.
Planning Enforcement actions are private and protected from the FOI act unless they go to court where you’ll see the public outcome.
The only info the Plan Enf section will give out is if there’s any active enforcement notice on a site as this is requested during the conveyance process daily.
What information in particular are you looking for?

Sometimes it’s contained in the condition of the retention refusal. One application I done for a client last year stated it had to be removed within 6 months.
If there’s an active Enforcement File then shortly after the decision is made and if no appeal to ABP is lodged, the Plan Enf section will touch base stagings it’s removal is now required to avoid an Enforcement Notice as once that notice is issued, it’s legal and the building owner is then liable to Costs.
Enforcement Notice has been issued against a structure which has been illegally adapted for habitation. Wondering what timescale applies to the tenants having to leave - notice etc.
Are you sure it’s an Enforcement Notice and not a Section 152 Warning Letter?
Positive it's an Enforcement Notice.
With a little work they could delay this for 10+ years. In reality, if it not a major development, the enforcement only means they will not be able to sell it until remedial action is taken.
So if its a "garden room" that is not a monstrosity, the chances of actual enforcement is close to zero and there is literally nothing you can do.
All you have to look at is the massive house built in Meath and you can see the difficulty. If the person who ahs it claims their son/daughter/niece/nephew etc are living in it due to the current crisis, a judge will give a lengthy stay on enforcement and then a further extension and a further extension
So you may not like it, but best to ignore it and not let it affect you too much
That’s incorrect, once it goes to Enforcement Notice, legal proceedings have begun and a court date will be set if the requirements of the Enforcement Notice are not complied with.
