My Department does not collate planning statistics regarding the number of decisions to grant permission for one-off houses that were subsequently appealed to An Bord Pleanála; or when decisions to grant permission were subsequently determined by the Board.

Regulations provide for a weekly list of appeals and referrals received by the Board and appeals or referrals determined or otherwise disposed of by the Board. These weekly lists are available on the Board's website at www.pleanala.ie/.

Arrangements have been put in place by all bodies under the aegis of my Department to facilitate the provision of information directly to members of the Oireachtas. This provides a speedy, efficient and cost effective system to address queries directly to the relevant bodies. The contact email address for An Bord Pleanála is Oireachtasqueries@pleanala.ie.
