Planning Advice Outreach (Castlewellan)

We are resuming our series of drop-in planning advice outreach sessions across the region.  Our next session will be held on Tuesday, 21 June 2022 in The Lodge, Dublin Road, Castlewellan between 12 noon and 4.00 pm.

Our Planning Advice Service is part-funded by the Department for Infrastructure and enables us to provide free, confidential, impartial planning advice to people and communities who cannot afford to pay a private consultant. 

You can drop into the advice session any time between 12 noon and 4.00 pm to get one-to-one confidential advice from one of our planners.  There is no need to make an appointment.  We can give advice on: 

·         how the planning system works (applications; fees; enforcement; appeals);

·         planning policies;

·         your council’s decision making process; and

·         how to comment or object if you think a proposal or a development will have a negative impact on your home or your community.

You can also get advice by email ( or by telephone (9023 9444 or 07783 649288).
