While the Planning Enforcement Team may be aware of breaches of planning control, there is also a role for the public in alerting the Council to unauthorised development. You can write, email or telephone us using the contact details provided below. You will need to provide information in relation to:
the location of the alleged breach;
a description of the development, works or other activities that constitute the alleged breach;
the person or business suspected of carrying out the breach (if known); and
any other information that may help with our investigation.
You may wish to complete our planning enforcement form to record these details; this can be downloaded below and then emailed or posted to us.
You do not have to provide your name and contact details unless you want to be informed of the outcome of the investigation. If you do provide these details, the Council will protect your identity in accordance with the Environmental Information Regulations 2004 and the Data Protection Act 2018. We may, however, be asked to disclose your details if the case goes to court, in such cases we will contact you in advance to provide advice in relation to this matter.
