What enforcement powers do my council have?
We get our planning enforcement powers from the Town and Country Planning Act 1990.
The Act gives us the following powers:
- to enter land to make necessary inspections
- to require owners and occupiers to provide information about the ownership and use of land and buildings
- to serve enforcement and other notices on landowners and persons responsible to require breaches of planning control to stop or be improved or both.
- Report a breach of planning control
- Report a run down or derelict building
