Can an objection or appeal be withdrawn?

An question which arises from time to time is whether an objection to a proposed development can be withdrawn?  There is no provision to withdraw an objection to a planning application under the current planning legislation.  It is the stated practice of Kildare County Council not to allow the withdrawl of objections.

The situation is very different in relation to the withdrawl of an appeal. An appeal can be withdrawn by an appellant at any time prior to the determination of the case by An Board Pleanala. Where an appeal is withdrawn (or all the appeals where there is more than one), the original decision of the planning authority takes effect. To withdraw an appeal the Board must receive written confirmation of the intention to withdraw.
