Free Planning Information Service

In April 2012, a new website was launched, providing free access to zoning in approximately 400 development and local area plans across the country.

You can also use this free information service as follows:

  • Find street addresses and link into Google Street View to look at properties from the adjacent road
  • Overlay heritage, flooding, census and other information onto modern, high quality ordnance
  • Survey Ireland mapping, as well as historical maps dating from the 19th century
  • Measure areas and distances
  • Carry out various types of analysis on the data in the system.

Visit is an initiative by the Department of the Environment, Community and Local Government.
