Planning applications are available to view, both online and at the planning counter in the offices of Westmeath County Council. All documents (with the exception of confidential information) submitted as part of the planning application are available for viewing by the public. Also written submissions and observations from third parties and prescribed bodies are also available for viewing. Internal reports on the application, prepared by or on behalf of the planning authority, are only available for viewing once a decision has been made on the application. Copies of any part of the application may be purchased at a charge not exceeding the reasonable cost of making a copy.
Please note that in the event of any potentially defamatory allegation giving rise to legal action against it, the Council may seek indemnity from the person making the allegation. It should be understood that the Council is only concerned with issues relevant to the proper planning and sustainable development of the area and that personalised comments are generally not relevant to its deliberations.
