Section 31 of the PPA provides that any person requiring a development permission has to make an application to the relevant county accompanied by such plans and particulars as are necessary to indicate the purposes of the development.
The county when considering a development application submitted to it may consult with various officers including but not limited to the Director of Survey, NLC and the Chief Engineer (Roads).
The county may then either grant the applicant a development permission with or without conditions or refuse to grant the permission stating the grounds of refusal.
Third parties will only have an opportunity to object during public participation that is required before an Environment Impact Assessment licence can be issued.
