My Department collates and publishes a wide range of housing and planning statistics that inform the preparation and evaluation of policy, and those data are available on my Department’s website www.environ.ie. Data on number of applications for extension of time under Section 42 of the Planning and Development Act 2000 are included in this range and are broken down by local authority area. Data relating to applications granted and refused are also included. Data for 2013 will be available by June 2014.
