Air Pollution Appeals

The Environmental Protection Agency (“EPA”) is now responsible for processing Air Pollution Act licence appeals.  These appeals were previously processed by An Bord Pleanála but the responsibility transferred to the EPA on 31 August 2015 following the implementation of the Environment (Miscellaneous Provisions) Act 2015.

It should be noted that the scope of an appeal is limited to air pollution matters and does not extend to planning issues.

For further information in relation to these appeals, and the appropriate fee payable, please refer to the following:

Please note that the fees payable to the EPA should be made by cheque, postal order or bank draft made payable to the Environmental Protection Agency.

If you would like to submit an Appeal under the Air Pollution Act 1987, as amended, please forward it to the Environmental Licensing Programme at:
