At the beginning of 2015 CIS published a report highlighting over 500 major/key projects which had either just commenced or are due to start during this year to a value in excess of €11 billion. Since this report, our research team has experienced an overall increase of 29% in planning applications granted for major projects in the first 5 months of this year over the same period last year.

Our estimated value of this 29% increase is in excess of ¾ billion euro. Note that this figure does not include extension of durations. The infographic below illustrates this increase across the provinces.
