Dealing with unauthorised development
Sometimes, development goes ahead without planning permission, or without meeting all of the specified planning conditions, this is known as ‘unauthorised development’. When this happens, our planning enforcement team will investigate and, where appropriate, take formal enforcement action.
How we make decisions on unauthorised development
We will undertake our enforcement duties as set out in our Enforcement and Monitoring Plan.
You can view more information on the planning enforcement process and the types of actions available with unauthorised development on GOV.UK’s website.
