The LCI unit in Dublin City Council has set up a ‘One Stop Shop’ Advisory Team from Planning, Architects, Fire Prevention, Building Control, Conservation, Valuers and other relevant Departments. Our team is available to meet with you and provide advice on your proposed refurbishment and/or conversion works. It is a FREE service but you must make an appointment in advance by contacting the Living City Initiative Unit, Planning & Property Development Department, Block 4, Floor 3, Civic Offices, Dublin 8 or by email at livingcityinitative@dublincity.ie or phone (01) 222 3480.

In order for the LCI unit to consider issuing a 'Letter of Certification' pursuant to the Living City Initiative Scheme, on completion of the works, the applicant must provide to the LCI unit, Planning and Property Development Department a 'Letter of Opinion' from a suitably qualified professional such as, an Architect, Planner or Engineer regarding the following:

Should that be the case, the reason why the works are considered exempt from the requirement to obtain planning permission should be outlined in the letter or you must provide a copy of a Section 5 Declaration from the Planning Authority to the effect that the works are exempt from planning permission.
  • That the basic standards of facilities regarding water, sewerage and other services have been installed.
