Enforcement

What do we do next?

  • Investigate the details of the complaint
  • Establish whether a breach of planning control has taken place
  • Try to negotiate a solution with the 'offender' if the development/use can be stopped or if there is a possibility that planning permission might be granted
  • Where there is insufficient evidence or no breach is found, advise the complainant that no action is proposed
  • Where a breach has occurred, we will gather evidence as necessary to be satisfied that formal action is justified
  • Consider the expediency of taking formal enforcement action having regard to Government policy and our Core Strategy policies as well as all other material considerations.
