Planning Enforcement and Monitoring Plan

Last updated: 9 September 2021

9. Role of the parish and town councils

9.1 We recognise that parish and town councils can play an important role in the provision of an exemplar enforcement service. Town and parish councils have a great deal of local knowledge and awareness of activities in their area. We will seek their views on the delivery of the service and will engage, where appropriate, on enforcement matters. We will notify parish and town council of formal actions taken in their area and, where appropriate, will encourage them to aid in the detection of breaches of planning control as well as contributing to monitoring developments and in the compliance process.
