The Consultation Process

What is the Consultation Process?

If a residential estate is proposed to be taken in charge by Kildare County Council, it must go through a public consultation process, in accordance with Section 180 of the Planning & Development Act, 2000 (as amended) and in accordance with Section 11 of the Roads Act 1993, (as amended).

The consultation process consists of publicly advertising the taking in charge proposal for two weeks, accepting submissions for an additional four weeks (six weeks total) and making a report to the Municipal District. Elected members must then vote on whether to take an estate in charge at a Municipal District meeting.

Any estate proposed to be taken in charge is advertised in local newspapers and on our consultation portal.

How does the Consultation Process work?

Our public consultations can be viewed in two ways:

  • Through our online Consultation Portal, available here. You will find details of the proposed estate to be taken in charge along with a map displaying the areas being taken in charge.
  • At the public counter in the Roads & Transportation Department (Level 4) at Áras Chill Dara, Devoy Park, Naas from 9.30am to 4.30pm, Monday to Friday (except for public holidays). To view the maps in person at Áras Chill Dara, you will be required to make an appointment via the online system on our website or by calling 045 980200.

How can I make a submission?

Objections or representations in relation to taking in charge can be made directly through the Consultation Portal.

Alternatively, written submissions can be made to the Administrative Officer, Development Control Section, Kildare County Council, Level 4, Áras Chill Dara, Devoy Park, Naas, Co. Kildare.
