Enforcement Action

If you are contacted by the Council in relation to an enforcement matter or even a minor breach of planning control, we recommend contacting us at the earliest opportunity so that we can negotiate a solution that avoids the issuing of formal proceedings.

We can normally negotiate that a suitable planning application or Certificate of Lawfulness application is submitted for consideration, prior to the Council issuing any formal enforcement proceedings.

 

If an Enforcement Notice is served, we can submit an appeal to the Planning Inspectorate, which can request that planning permission is granted in any event, as well as usually delaying any further action taken by the Council until the appeal has been determined (which can be over 6 months).

 

We will tailor the advice and strategy to your needs, depending on whether it is a matter that you wish to resolve as soon as possible, or there can be circumstances where clients are actively looking to postpone any further action for as long as possible.
