Submissions / Observations
Any person or body, on payment of the prescribed fee, and within the relevant time period, may make a submission/observation, in writing, to a Planning Authority in relation to a planning application.
Any submission/observation made to the Planning Authority on a planning application is made available for public inspection both in the hard copy file and on the Council’s website (http://kildare.ie/countycouncil)
Persons making a submission/observation on a planning application should be aware that comments involving allegations of any kind against a named or otherwise identifiable person or organisation
may be viewed as defamatory by the subject of the comments.
Persons may be sued directly for any defamatory allegations in any submission/observation and should avoid making such allegations.
In the event of any potentially defamatory allegation giving rise to legal action against it, the Planning Authority may seek indemnity from the person making the allegation.
