Local Government (Planning and Development) Act, 1982

Validity of certain permissions and approvals.

6.—(1) A permission or approval granted on appeal under Part IV of the Principal Act prior to the 15th day of March, 1977, shall not be, and shall not be regarded as ever having been, invalid by reason only of the fact that the development concerned contravened, or would contravene, materially the development plan relating to the area of the planning authority to whose decision the appeal related.

(2) If, because of any or all of its provisions, subsection (1) of this section, would, but for this subsection, conflict with a constitutional right of any person, the provisions of that subsection shall be subject to such limitation as is necessary to secure that they do not so conflict but shall be otherwise of full force and effect.
