Planning enforcement

Our experienced planning consultants can act on your behalf to respond to planning enforcement issues - minimising the impact, eliminating confusion and resolving the situation.

We are specialists experienced in navigating planning legislation and regulation and will take the stress and confusion out of the process for you.

A calm head in a crisis

Every year, many people fall foul of planning regulations, often unintentionally and unwittingly. The arrival of the planning enforcement notice is an unwelcome surprise, whether you’re a land owner or tenant.

Planning enforcement procedures can be intimidating, typically emphasising the maximum negative penalties and outcomes that the system allows. The reality is often less threatening and our team of planning professionals can put your mind at rest.

Dealing with local authorities and planning offices

Our team are experienced in negotiating with local authorities and planning officers. We understand planning law, and so can take charge of the process to deliver a satisfactory outcome.

Advice and action

Many issues can be resolved via explanation, negotiation and cooperation: we will develop a suitable strategy and negotiate with authorities on your behalf to secure the necessary consents. If things escalate, we can also act for you in planning enforcement appeals and inquiries. We have the skills and experience to help you minimise the effect on your property and avoid prosecution and penalties.
