Planning Enforcement

Make a complaint or find guidance about the complaints procedure

Planning Enforcement investigates possible breaches of planning control and aims to resolve these using the most appropriate means (from negotiation to formal enforcement action). When development takes place without permission, the council has a full range of enforcement powers available to establish whether a breach of planning control has taken place, what harm is caused as a result of the breach and how to remedy the situation.

If your enquiry relates to an existing investigation, please email us ( and clearly quote the case reference number (for example: ENF/123/20/PAR) on your acknowledgement letter.
