Section 57

Under the Planning and Development Act 2000-2002 (The Act), works which would normally be considered exempted development under Section 4(i)h of the Act may not be exempt in a protected structure or a proposed protected structure.

Section 57 of the Planning and Development Act 2000 as amended allows for the owner or occupier of a protected structure to apply to the planning authority for a declaration as to the type of works which it considers would or would not materially affect the character of the structure or any element of the structure. The declaration will clarify which works would be considered exempted development.
