Planning for waste infrastructure is the starting point for many developing new waste sites or modifying a waste authorisation. Planning is regarded by many as a difficult area to understand and it is essential that the correct planning foundation is in place before waste licences or permit applications get underway. For permitted sites, planning is a prerequisite

for the application process. Details around appropriate assessment and environmental impact assessment are also key factors that need to be addressed as part of the preparation for waste facility development. This course looks at the overall planning framework and the different types of applications and requirements for making them. The course has been written and developed by an experienced team of consultants led by the course tutor Billy Moore. Billy has acted as an An Bord Pleanala inspectors after many years working on all aspects of planning and development control.
