The E.P.A is responsible for licensing enforcement, monitoring and assessment activities associated with the environment in Ireland and its protection.
Before a large plant like for example, a 20 million litre powder milk plant can be approved to be built, it needs a licence from the E.P.A.What does it do?
These conditions are monitored closely by the E.P.A and are important considerations in the early stages of planning for the powder milk plant.
It is an offence to carry on a licensable activity without a licence from the EPA.E.P.A

Acontractor is responsible for day-to-day oversight of the construction site, management of vendors and trades.

The contractor is responsible for supplying all materials, meeting production deadlines and supplying all plant and engineering vehicles.How are the main contractors chosen?
The contractor is responsible for supplying all materials, meeting production deadlines and supplying all plant and engineering vehicles.
They are also charged with providing all trades and tertiary services to the project.
In a lot of cases the main contractor project manages the build as they are “on the ground” and have a real time view of proceedings.Contractors
All development of property requires planning permission. Some small extensions or conservatories may not need planning permission.
It is useful to talk to the local authority before you apply for planning permission, to see if the development fits in with the towns development plan.
You apply for planning permission by filling in a planning application form(posted on the blog).
Generally, the local planning authority makes a decision on the planning application within 8 wks.
Planning permission normally lasts 5 years.
If the local authority refuses an application. The applicant has 4 wks to appeal to An BordPleanala.
The copy of the planning permission application forms are open to the public.
Outside parties are able to make a written submission or observation on a given planning permission at a cost of €20.Information on Planning Permission
Once a developer (like Ourselves) has applied for planning permission it is decided by the local council to grant planning permission, sometimes with condition, or reject it.
These conditions must be met for the development to proceed.

The Chairperson is voted in.
The 9 other members are selected by the Minister of the Environment.
One board member is a civil servant appointed by the minister.The Board of An BordPleanala
As I said earlier it is an impartial appeals board, so it is an offence to try to influence the decision of any of any member of the board in relation to a planning appeal.
The Minister of the Environment has the authority to make decisions about general planning and the board must take this into consideration when making there decison.
But the minister may not influence the board in an appeal process.Appeals
If a particular case is sensitive or complex, all the members of the board will be involved.
The board will make a decision after all the evidence is investigated.
Mostly the board will follow the inspector outcome but not all the time.
If the board does not agree with the inspector, they must give reasons for there decision.
The board can dismiss an appeal if they decide that the appeal is not based on non-planning considerations ,,, ie personal issues
Once the decision is reached by the board, that decision is final.
This decision can only be challenged by the judicial system in the High court.Decisions
You may requsest an oral hearing on payment of an additional fee. An bordPleanala will normally only grant an oral hearing if the case is complex or if national od local issues are involved.
Some hearing are held to understand the motives of the appeal.
The hearings themselves are usually quite informal.Oral Hearing
