The Office of the Planning Regulator (OPR) is pleased to present the second edition of the ‘Learning from Litigation’ bulletin. This bulletin has been prepared to highlight and disseminate key learnings from the continually evolving planning and environmental case law. It provides information on important precedents, court decisions and emerging trends with an overview of noteworthy planning cases.
The case selection for this edition of the bulletin was overseen by a Planning Law Steering Group consisting of nominees from the Law Society of Ireland’s Environmental and Planning Law Committee, An Bord Pleanála, the OPR legal services provider Fieldfisher LLP and the OPR. A nominee has been sought for this Group from the local authority sector via the County and City Management Association (CCMA) and this nominee is expected to join the Group in Q1 2024.
The OPR envisages that the bulletin will be published on a quarterly basis.
