To find out how the information on this eform will be used, please read our Privacy Policy:

Planning permission is needed for many types of development and changes in use of land or buildings. Permission is also required to erect many forms of advertisements and there are controls to protect Listed Buildings and preserved trees. When development or work takes place without permission, or not in line with a planning permission or condition placed on it, the Council has various legal powers to take what is called 'enforcement' action to remedy the problem.

The Council attaches particular importance to planning enforcement to ensure that the amenity of all residents and businesses is properly protected.

We also have an on-line Planning Enforcement Register containing details of enforcement notices the Council has served.

If you have any suggestions or complaints about our enforcement work please let us know.
