Unauthorised Development

We shall investigate any alleged breaches of planning or listed building control, unauthorised development and also strategically monitor any consents that have been issued. 

Should you wish to report an alleged breach please use our online reporting form.

Development Management is about controlling the way the environment around us is changed by people or companies who wish to build on it in some way. There are complex national laws and local guidelines in place to control how the development of our environment takes place.

The new Monitoring & Enforcement charter gives information on the procedures and the powers available to the Council to ensure the planning laws are upheld and the standards of service our customers can expect from the Development Management service. 

The council has approved an addendum to the Charter that clarifies how consideration of Covid 19 will be afforded weighting in the planning enforcement process.

The addendum will be in place until 31st March 2021
