Planning Enforcement and Monitoring Plan

Last updated: 9 September 2021

10. Major infrastructure developments

10.1 Major infrastructure developments such as HS2 and Highway network works etc have their own Act within which they operate. The developments are generally enforced by their own internal monitoring team with complaints investigated by a commissioner, particularly in relation to HS2. Alleged breaches of planning control related to these developments will be investigated accordingly and the enforcement team will work with other internal teams as well as external partners to seek as resolution. However, such projects are not immune from enforcement action and the council will pursue enforcement action against unauthorised development where it is appropriate to do so.
