Appropriate Assessment of Planning Applications
As required by law, ALL planning applications received, including those already in the system, are subjected to screening for Appropriate Assessment.
An appropriate assessment of proposed development is required in cases where it cannot be excluded that the proposed development would have a significant effect on a European site. It is the responsibility of the planning authority to screen proposed developments to determine whether an appropriate assessment is required and where the authority determines that an appropriate assessment is required, the authority will normally require the applicant to submit a Natura Impact Statement (NIS). Where the applicant considers that the proposed development is likely to have a significant effect on a European site it is open to him/her to submit a NIS with the Planning application. Where a Natura Impact Statement is submitted, please ensure that the public notices state same.
