Planning Enforcement

The Planning Enforcement Team investigates alleged breaches of planning control.

The Planning Enforcement Team investigates alleged breaches of planning control such as building work taking place without planning permission or properties being used for business or other uses where the necessary planning permission has not been granted. The Team also investigates other offences under planning law such as the unauthorised display of advertisements or unauthorised works to a listed building or protected tree.

In all cases where a breach of planning control is identified we will consider the harm being caused by the breach and how it could best be remedied. Sometimes we are informed of matters that may not be in the public interest to investigate further. 

Please note, planning enforcement matters / complaints can now be submitted online. To report a planning enforcement matter or to make a complaint, please click here.
