What are Enforcement Appeals

If you have received an enforcement notice or other formal notice from the local planning authority (LPA) in respect of your property, then there is an opportunity to make an appeal in respect of that notice.

An enforcement notice will usually be served on the owner of a property (and others) where the LPA considers there has been a breach of planning control and consider it expedient to take action to remedy the breach.

The notice will usually require you to stop doing something, such as removing a building or structure, or alter it to make it acceptable.

Overview

The Process

The appeal process depends on the complexity of the issues relating to the requirements of the notice, and you have the options of proceeding either through written representations, informal hearing or Inquiry.

Many appeals in respect of Enforcement Notices are by means of an Inquiry, as there may need to be complex legal issues to discuss or consider. Whilst you may consider Written Representations to be appropriate to your case, the final decision as to the type of procedure will rest with the Planning Inspectorate, in consultation with yourself (or your agent) and the Local Planning Authority.
