How Do I Arrange a Pre-Planning Consultation?
The planning process can be complex, particularly if you are unfamiliar with it.
Pre-planning meetings give applicants an opportunity to seek advice on their proposed development.
If you or your architect want to speak to a planner before making a planning application you can request a pre-planning consultation. In relation to small-scale developments, this advice may be given via a telephone call, correspondence or email. It is not always necessary to hold a pre-planning meeting.
It is advisable prior to making a pre-planning application, to consult the Wexford County Development Plan 2013-2019, which may contain much of the relevant planning information needed for your proposed development.
The applicant must be the owner of the site or have permission in writing from the owner of the site to pursue pre-planning advice.
Wexford County Council do not conduct pre-auction consultations. Prospective purchasers should consult the Wexford County Development Plan 2013-2019, and are encouraged to seek independent professional advice.
You are advised that the scheduling of a pre-planning meeting is subject to staff availability and meeting scheduling.
Requests can be made by post or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org and must include the following documentation:
• The Pre-Planning Form. Click here.
• A site location map. The site must be clearly identifiable & outlined in red.
For large scale residential/commercial developments
• A clear and detailed description of proposed development/nature of enquiry and any additional supporting information as necessary including site layout map, sketches or preliminary drawings.
• Confirmation from Irish Water of the feasibility of Providing Public Water/Wastewater Services and Availability of capacity.
Please Note: Where an applicant has received a decision to refuse planning permission on a site, proposals to overcome the reasons for refusal must be submitted with the pre planning request.
