Planning enforcement

Our Planning Enforcement Team investigate building works that have been carried out without planning permission or that have been completed in a way that is different from the plans we approved. These are called breaches of planning control.  We also investigate wrongful uses of property and some other neighbourhood issues.

Please read what we can investigate on the page above.
