13.3.3 Interest in Property

With regard to submitting a planning application, under the Planning and Development Regulations, 2001 (as amended), an applicant who is not the legal owner of the land or structure in question must submit a letter of consent from the owner in order to make the planning application. Where an applicant is not the owner and does not submit such a letter of consent, the application must be invalidated. The Development Management Guidelines for Planning Authorities, 2007, provide further guidance on this matter.
