Planning enforcement can be a major hurdle when diversification projects evolve or grow without the necessary consents or have outgrown their original permission.

Enforcement notice appeals can be complicated and the potential for a breach of condition notice offers no right of appeal.

Working carefully with the council from the outset can help to prevent unwanted notices which can run permanently with the land. Detailed legal knowledge is required in addition to sound planning expertise and a good working relationship with the council’s officers. Whirledge & Nott’s planning team can offer you all of this. We have been successful in working with local councils to regularise and resolve enforcement issues to the satisfaction of both parties.

If you have been subject to threat of enforcement action or received a planning contravention notice or breach of condition notice then let us provide you with the right advice at the earliest possible opportunity.
