Planning consultation (Borough Council)

The Parish Council has been made aware of the following Planning Consultation:

Planning Enforcement Policy Proposal for Consultation

About the Proposed Policy
The integrity of the planning system and the public’s confidence in it relies on effective enforcement action being taken by Local Planning Authorities where necessary.
Enforcement action is at the discretion of the Local Planning Authority and not all breaches of planning control will result in formal enforcement action being taken as is outlined in the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF).
The purpose of publishing a Planning Enforcement policy is to explain the Council’s approach when dealing with planning enforcement matters to provide clarification and manage customer expectations in terms of likely outcomes and timescales.
The pledges included in the policy will be monitored and reported upon monthly to ensure service standards are maintained.
