Agriculture, forestry and planning applications
Planning applications are referred to the scientific staff in the environment section of Clare County Council for report or comment so that matters relating to environmental protection, resource protection and pollution control can be addressed in conditions attached to the grant of planning.
- Developments with potential environmental impact
- Private Domestic Wastewater treatment systems
- Agricultural developments
- Major forestry applications
As the Forestry Service under the Department of Agriculture are the authorising body for forestry, forestry applications are referred to both environment and to the planning sections for comment and observations before submission to the Forest Service, who make the final decision on the application.
