Area of Interest Alerts

In some cases, you may require notifications for planning activity across a wider area. Some businesses may prefer countywide alerts, rather than a buffered distance around their office. The "Area of Interest" feature is ideal for this situation. All you need to do is select your preferred boundaries for a list then sit back and wait for relevant alerts. A list of pre-defined boundaries are available throughout Ireland, and map previews are available for each. Stored boundaries include: 

  • County / Council Boundary
  • Council Municipal Districts
  • Urban Settlement Areas (OSI/Census)
  • Dublin Postal Districts (D1, D2, D24, etc.)

Your business may only be interested in a small number of these applications or, in particular, a specified type of application. allows your business to store keywords that relate to your industry and you will get alerts for any applications where your keywords are mentioned in the development description of the planning file. For example, if you offer construction services then you can save keyword search for ''extension'', ''new build'' and other related terms of interest.

You can limit your keyword filter results to specific counties that represent your area of business (e.g. building contractors will only operatore in certain parts of the country, etc.).
