Planning Enforcement

The Council has planning enforcement powers that it may apply when there is a failure to comply with planning regulations but these are discretionary and it is only able to do this when it can be justified according to planning policies and law. The main areas where enforcement may apply are;

  • Carrying out building works either without planning permission or in a way that is significantly different from what has been granted planning permission
  • Failing to comply with planning conditions attached to planning permissions
  • Changes of use of land or buildings either without planning permission or in a way that is significantly different from what has been granted planning permission
  • Advertising signs
  • Works to trees protected by Tree Preservation Orders
  • Works to trees in Conservation Areas
  • Works on Listed Buildings

We do not investigate:

  • Neighbour disputes
  • Land boundaries or ownership disputes
  • Works to party walls (see the Party Wall Act 1996 - Department of Communties and Local Government website)
  • Dangerous structures

Confidentiality

If you have reported a breach of planning control, details of your issue will be dealt with in the strictest confidence. Your name and address will not be repeated to the person or organisation involved in the alleged breach or published on the Council's website.
