Breaches of planning control

Planning enforcement

Planning breaches and enforcement issues can be technical, complex and take time to resolve. They are governed by The Town and Country Planning Act. The Act aims to strike a balance between the freedom of owners to use or alter their property and the quality of life for neighbours and residents. It is not normally a crime to breach planning control.
