What can I report?
Planning enforcement primarily deals with breaches of planning controls, where:
- works are undertaken without planning permission;
- where planning conditions are not complied with; or,
- where the use is changed without planning permission.
How do I report it?
You can report an alleged breach of planning controls using the link to the form below. Initially you will be asked to create a MyAccount (if you don't already have one) which will enable you to track progress of your application.
Planning breaches you can report
Some of the alleged planning breaches you can report include:
- residential extensions without planning permission
- advertisements displayed without permission
- illegal works to listed buildings, protected trees, or in conservation areas
- developments affecting road safety
- land use adversely affecting amenity
- untidy sites
You can search the online planning register to see if a planning application has been made for a particular development.
What shouldn't I report?
We won't investigate:
- satellite dishes
- replacement windows unless the development is in a conservation area, or a listed building
We also won't get involved with investigations of land ownership, boundary disputes or neighbour disputes.
