About Us FAQs Why did An Taisce make a submission on one application and not another? We receive, on average, over 500 planning application referrals per month. The number of applications we are able to respond to at any given time is largely dependent on our workload. We try to prioritise the submissions we make based on, among various criteria, the scale of the development in question and the likelihood and severity of potential environmental or heritage impacts. Due to our limited resources, we are unfortunately unable to respond to every planning application that we would like to.
