There are a number of different planning enforcement noticesand/or actions that are able to be taken by the planning enforcement team:
breach of Condition Notice
temporary Stop Notice
section 215 Notice (Amenity Notice)
planning Enforcement Order
remedial Notice – High Hedges
Formal planning enforcement action may be taken where:
the matter is so serious that it merits immediate action
there is a lack of confidence that the matter will be resolved voluntarily
there's a history of non-resolution of issues by a voluntary means
the matter has not been satisfactorily resolved on a voluntary basis.
Such action can take a number of forms, including issuing:
Enforcement Notices and Listed Building Enforcement Notices: require the actions specified in the Notice to be undertaken within the time period specified. There is a right of appeal against these Notices.
Breach of Condition Notices: require compliance with conditions imposed on a grant of planning permission. There's no right of appeal against these notices.
Untidy Land Notices: require the improvement of land or buildings in order to remedy their visual impact on the amenities of the surrounding area. There is a right of appeal to the Magistrates Court against such Notices.
Improvement or Repairs Notices: in respect of Listed Buildings which are falling into disrepair.
Where it is considered expedient to do so a Temporary Stop Notice maybe issued.
In circumstances involving potentially serious or irreversible unauthorised development, an Injunction may be issued.
Non-compliance with the Notices listed above within the required timescale is an offence which we will normally seek to pursue by means of a prosecution.
