Opinions of Exemption with Planning Permission
Exempted development is development for which planning permission is not required. Categories of exempted development are set out in planning law (Planning and Development Act, 2000 (as amended) and the Planning and Development Regulations 2001(as amended)).
The purpose of exemption is to avoid controls on developments of a minor nature, such as a small extension to a house. Reference must be made to the legislation to ensure that the development falls within the exemption thresholds/limits. If the particular development exceeds the thresholds/limits listed, the development requires permission.
Prior to commencing works MOL Engineers can advise you if the development you are proposing complies with the exempted development legislation. If it does, on completion of the works we can provide you with a Opinions of Exemption with Planning Permission stating same. If you are selling your property and you have previously carried out works which you believe to be exempt we can inspect your property and provide you with a Opinions of Exemption with Planning Permission confirming same for the purchaser of the property.
