Draft Planning Enforcement Strategy and Charter - 2021

This consultation starts on Monday 17 May, 2021 for an 8 week period and closes on Monday 5 July, 2021.

We want your views on the Council’s new revised Planning Enforcement Strategy and Charter, which will replace the previous version adopted in April 2017.

The refreshed document aims to inform Councillors and the local community on helping them to understand how planning enforcement works given the constraints and regulations on how officers handle cases.

The document identifies the resources and matches these with local priorities for action, in order to tackle the most serious planning and enforcement problems that arise in the area. To do this, the Council will follow government advice and concentrate its resources on clearly defined priorities for action and promote a proactive regime where possible.
