The Department of Housing, Planning and Local Government has further extended appropriate periods and time limits associated with the planning process in response to the Governments decision to extend the ‘stay at home period’  until May 5th 2020.

The original 23 day extension to timelines for making appeals submissions etc has been extended by a further 19 days until May 9th 2020. The further extension of time limits and appropriate periods is the logical response to the stay at home extension.

The effect of the further extension has the total effect of adding an additional 42 days (6 weeks) to prescribed time limits and appropriate periods set out in planning legislation.
