REDWatch Note:

The Major projects page at the Department of planning changes almost daily as new documents are added and it is very difficult for people to keep track of the changes. We check the site periodically and will update this page as we become aware of any changes but to be sure you have the latest documents you should check the various sites for any new information. 

This page is put together to help you find Major Project proposals concerning this area. New Applications and the Director Generals Requirements (DGRs) for the project will show up on Register of major projects - Metropolitan Area. When the application is received from the developer in line with the DGR’s and is ready for public exhibition the listing moves to Major projects part 3A - On Exhibition. After the Minister has made a determination on the project the documents move to the Notices of Determination section of the Department of Planning’s website and then into the Archive of Approvals.
