Pricing Plan FAQ

How does the 60-day free trial for Business Accounts work?

The registration page asks if you want to sign up as a standard subscriber or as a business. If you want to try out the Business Account, you will have complete access to the service throughout the course of the first 60 days. You do not need to provide any card details to sign up for the 60 day trial. After 60 days you have the choice to upgrade to a paid plan. If you don't then you'll simply fall back to the free viewer plan (i.e., no alerts issued).

How long does a subscription last?

Subscriptions are charged over a 12 month period. For Subscriber accounts, this means you will pay €1.99 * 12 months. Businesses pay €35 * 12 months. While it would be nice to charge on a monthly basis, it isn't practical from a billing and administrative point of view.

How do I cancel or close my account?

Each account type (free, paid subscriber and business) includes a self-service feature to close and permanently delete the account. This takes a few seconds to carry out. Once an account deletion is triggered it cannot be restored.

Will my local Council definitely send regular updates?

Our advice is to check the coverage map and table to check how regularly your Council is providing updates. Data is based on an Open Data feed from Dept. of Housing Planning & Local Government. In some cases Councils may not send updates at the level you require. The 60 day trial is geared towards having an understanding of the type of update levels you should expect for your preferred Council(s).

Is there a free trial available for standard subscriber accounts?

No. Subscribers can signup instantly for the the small, modest fee of just €1.99 per month. Paid annually, this amounts to just €29 per year including VAT. Other subscribers have said this is a very small price to pay for this type of service.

If this data is available on Council websites then what exactly am I paying for?

You are mostly paying for convenience. offers a huge time saving experience if you have a regular interest in Irish planning applications. Sure, while this data is publicly available elsewhere (e.g. Council sites), it is sometimes difficult to digest, search and understand. Many Councils wil simply publish their data on their website whereas allows you to get notifications when something happens that impacts you. In other words, we do all the searching and filtering on your behalf and we get in touch when you need to know about a specific planning application and this is very convenient if you otherwise search planning registers each week.

Businesses are the primary paid user of and they sign up for a dedicated planning information service that comes with a variety of professional features (see the business page for details).

Can businesses claim back VAT?

Yes. VAT is charged at the standard rate and businesses can claim this back. Business account holders can provide their company information within their account profile to ensure their invoices are complete. Invoices can be exported & printed from within the account area for all account holders.
