These Regulations amend the Planning and Development Regulations 2001 in provisions concerning exempted development. A planning exemption is being introduced in respect of remedial works carried out in compliance with an advisory notice from a water services authority requiring remediation in cases where septic tanks or other onsite waste water treatment systems have been assessed by the water services authority as causing or likely to cause a risk to human health or the environment. e thinning, felling or replanting of trees, forests or woodlands (not including the replacement of broadleaf high forest by conifer species) and the construction or maintenance of a forest road are exempted development under section 4 of the Act because they come under consent systems under the Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine. However the effect of the amendments to section 4(4) of the Act, introduced by section 17 of the Environment (Miscellaneous Provisions) Act 2011, are to bring such development back under the Planning and Development Act if it would require environmental impact assessment or appropriate assessment.

Celtic tribes arrived on the island between 600 and 150 B.C. Invasions by Norsemen that began in the late 8th century were finally ended when King Brian BORU defeated the Danes in 1014. Norman invasions began in the 12th century and set off more than seven centuries of Anglo-Irish struggle marked by fierce rebellions and harsh repressions. The Irish famine of the mid-19th century saw the population of the island drop by one third through starvation and emigration. For more than a century after that the population of the island continued to fall only to begin growing again in the 1960s.
