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 Major Projects Listing on Department of Planning and Infrastructure Website. When the application is received from the developer in line with the DGR’s and is ready for public exhibition the documents are put on public exhibition. After this the Developer responds to the comments from the exhibition and prepares a Preferred Project Report which is assessed by the Department and a Determination made. The status of the application now shows on the Major Projects Register and documents are no longer moved to different parts of the site as was the case previously.
