About Us FAQs Where can I find information about planning applications in Ireland? Information regarding a planning application can be found on the planning authority websites. The relevant databases can be found on ePlans. Planning applications are searchable by reference number, applicant name, development description, or development address. An Bord Pleanala’s website, Ireland’s planning appeals board, provides information on planning appeals on local authority decisions, Strategic Infrastructure Development (SID) applications and Strategic Housing Development (SHD) applications (this system is now discontinued but previous SHD cases and cases awaiting a decision are still accessible). For a library of information on the planning system, visit the Office of the Planning Regulator’s website.
