Planning Enforcement

Planning Enforcement

Planning Enforcement is used by Councils to control development that has been carried out without planning permission. SLA have extensive experience of dealing with Planning Enforcement issues, whether this is from the point of view of a complainant or, more commonly, someone being investigated for an alleged breach of Planning Control and being subject to an Enforcement Appeals. We can help to save a situation if approached in time by conducting negotiations with the Council concerned; ensuring that requested information from the Council is supplied accurately. If negotiations fail and an Enforcement Notice is issued, we can often achieve a successful outcome for our clients, through advising on and conducting an Appeal against the Enforcement Notice. Our services also extend to providing similar services for Listed Building Enforcement Notices and Tree Replacement Notices. Tower Hamlets This building was constructed with the benefit of planning permission although the permitted details were vague. The developer constructed the building approximately similar to that which was permitted. An enforcement notice was issued and appealed. The inspector allowed the developer time to gain permission to modify the building to get close to that which was permitted. Planning permission has been granted to retain the building with modification and as student accommodation.   .
