Investigate planning breaches
New buildings, extensions or changes in the use of land or
buildings generally require planning permission. There are other
forms of planning consent which may be needed.
Sometimes work is started without permission or consent. We can
investigate these cases and take action where clear harm is
being caused. We'll keep a record of
enquiries confidential but if court proceedings follow we
may ask you to be a witness.
You can search for planning applications and appeals,
and see what stage an application has
If you're concerned about a planning matter and would like
us to investigate it please report it.
