Update on making an Planning Application on-line (ePlanning):

Kilkenny County Council  has been working in collaboration with the Local Government Management Agency  (LGMA) on the preparation of an e-planning portal

It is envisioned that e-planning will go live in Kilkenny County Council before the end of Quarter 3 2022.  From that time it will be possible for you to register as a user and submit planning applications online to Kilkenny County Council.

To this end the LGMA has prepared a short YouTube video linked below should you wish to familiarise yourself with the site prior to registration.
