Local planning enforcement plan

Anonymous enforcement enquiries

If enforcement enquiries are submitted without any contact details to enable us to seek further information or respond back to the person raising an enforcement enquiry, we will not normally pursue these items.

Anonymous enforcement enquiries will only be investigated if the alleged breach relates to illegal works to a scheduled ancient monument, a listed building or works to trees which are in a conservation area or trees protected by a tree preservation order, subject to sufficient information to be able to clearly identify the location of where the breach is allegedly being carried out.

An enforcement enquiry will be treated as being anonymous if no details are given or all the contact details provided are untraceable. It is beneficial for as many methods of communicating as possible are provided.
