Enforcement

enforcement

Development processes do not always run smoothly and the threat of enforcement action can be a worrying time. Most enforcement situations do not result in formal action and there are protocols for correct behaviour.

Smart Planning is alert to the many remedies available in the absence of a relevant planning permission. We can provide an honest assessment of the likely outcome and recommend steps to best resolve the situation at hand. This may involve providing factual information (or other submissions to the Local Planning Authority), proving that development is lawful, engaging in effective negotiation, making a relevant planning application or appealing against an enforcement notice.

Enforcement enquiries, by their very nature, have an immediacy which we are familiar with. Smart Planning will prioritise any initial enquiries through our free client surgeries and we reserve resources to respond quickly.
