Planning enforcement is the process of investigating and taking action against unauthorised development. This can include developments that have not got the appropriate planning permission, or those that have failed to comply to the rules stipulated when permission was granted.
Where this has occurred, councils have a responsibility to take enforcement action and have a range of powers to put right the wrongdoing.
How we work with you
If faced with a planning enforcement notice or investigation, we can support land and property owners to resolve disputes efficiently and with as little damage as possible. We can advise and guide you through the process, while liaising seamlessly with the council to reach a prompt solution.
We were instructed to provide strategic planning advice
on the development of a sustainable urban extension. This included assembling and
leading a new specialist consultant team to overcome an earlier planning refusal.
