Planning Permission - Driveway

    Hi, just looking for some help. I 'm looking to get a driveway added to my garden in North Dublin City (Marino). Most of the houses on the road already have this so hoping it wont be too much hassle. I planning on doing the drawing myself as I'm fairly comfortable with CAD but just wanted to check what size prints you actually submit to DCC? Or are these uploaded to the web portal?

    Thanks!

    A thing from A1 to A3 or A4 would be acceptable providing they are drawn to scale.

    Maximum scale for general drawings is 1:200. 1:50 or 1:100 would be normal.

    As for paper size, as Muffler says, anything from A4 to A0!

    By the way, they can be uploaded online but still need to be scale.

    Do you need planning permission to tarmac a driveway? I thought it was only required for dishing the kerb.

    also any idea how long it will take once you’ve submitted drawings ?

    You need permission to create the entrance in the boundary wall.

    Council will dish the path in DCC.

    Standard planning. 3 months for final grant all going well.
