Approved Newspapers

The Planning Authority is required to approve and publish a list of newspapers for publication of Newspaper notices for submission with Planning Authorities. The list must be reviewed at least every year.

The following newspapers are acceptable for Public Notices regarding Planning Applications: 

  • The Irish Independent (The Evening Herald)
  • The Irish Times
  • The Irish Examiner
  • The Echo Group
  • The People Group (County Wexford)
  • Mirror Group Newspapers (The Irish Daily Mirror, The Irish Sunday Mirror and The Irish People)
  • The Star
  • Irish Daily Mail and Irish Mail on Sunday
  • The Irish Sun
  • The Sunday Times
  • The Irish News
  • The Sunday World

Article 18(2)(a) Planning & Development Regulations 2001 (as amended) states:

“For the purposes of these Regulations, each Planning Authority shall approve a list of the newspapers, including national newspapers, it considers has a sufficiently large circulation in its functional area, and different newspapers may be approved in respect of different parts of such functional area.”

Article 18(2)(b) Planning & Development Regulations 2001 (as amended) states:

“The list referred to in paragraph (a) shall be reviewed by the Planning Authority as may be appropriate and at least once a year”.

At the date of review (29th November, 2016) there were no requests to be added to the list or no requests to be removed from the list.

I, therefore, approve the above named newspapers as acceptable regarding Planning Applications for the coming year.
