Large-scale Residential Developments (LRD)

The Large-scale Residential Development (LRD) process was introduced on 17th December 2021 to replace the Strategic Housing Development (SHD) process.  This restores the two-stage planning process, with decision making for LRD applications returning to the local planning authority in the first instance, with the subsequent right of appeal to An Board Pleanála.

The following form must be completed for all LRD Section 247 pre-planning requests & Section 32B Opinion meeting requests.
