S.I. No. 131 of 2020 - Planning and Development Act 2000 (Subsection (4) of Section 251A) Order 2020
The Planning and Development Act 2000 (Subsection (4) of Section 251A) Order 2020 (S.I. 131 of 2020) has the effect of further extending all public participation periods in the planning system for 19 additional days, up to and including 9 May 2020. The previous Order in this regard (S.I. 129 of 2020), which was made on 29 March 2020, had specified that the extension period was to end on 20 April 2020.

This extension provision, and related matters, have been notified to all planning authorities and An Bord Pleanála by way of Circular letter PL 3 of 2020.
