Local planning enforcement plan

Methods of communication

Our preferred method of communication is email (excluding temporary email addresses). This allows a written log to be kept of steps taken to resolve any outstanding matter whilst also allowing information to be fed back without additional delay. Alternative methods of communication include post and telephone either landline or mobile.

All evidence intended for use in any subsequent enforcement action will need to be submitted to us in writing, either by email or post. Verbal evidence cannot be accepted as ultimately, this cannot be presented before a court if the matter is taken to prosecution.

We do not have the resources in place to conduct an investigation through text or social media, for example, WhatsApp, Instagram, Twitter or Facebook.
