We ensure that land and buildings are used and developed in a proper manner. Unauthorised and harmful development can have considerable adverse impact on public amenity, the environment generally and the quality of life. Effective enforcement is therefore a vital part of the development process.

It is important that the public is aware of the Council’s approach when there has been a suspected breach of planning control. Any breach of the planning regulations, whether intentionally or otherwise, will be dealt with quickly, effectively and consistently.
