Planning enforcement

The main purposes of planning enforcement are to:

  • investigate alleged contraventions of planning control and, where appropriate, to negotiate or pursue formal enforcement action
  • monitor approved development during the construction period

Examples of alleged breaches of planning control are:

  • unauthorised extensions
  • unauthorised works to listed buildings or trees
  • breach of conditions attached to a planning permission

We do not deal with neighbour disputes or investigate land ownership or boundary disputes.
