Planning law has changed radically in Ireland since the first edition of this book was published. The Planning and Development (Strategic Infrastructure) Act 2006 has introduced a new one-stop procedure for strategic infrastructure development.

The rules governing legal challenges to decisions and acts of planning authorities and An Bord Pleanla have been rewritten, and the planning application procedure is now governed by the Planning and Development Regulations 2006.

Planning and Development Law 2nd ed has been fully revised to reflect these legislative changes. The new procedures are set out clearly and concisely, together with the authors commentary on the practical implications of same and the legal controversies which may arise.

From the Supreme Courts judgment on Carrickmines Castle to the European Court of Justices decision upholding participation fees, the second edition also examines in detail the case law over last four years.
