How Planning Enforcement Works
In-House Training

The integrity of any authority’s planning process, and the planning system in general, relies on effective enforcement when it is essential to deal with a breach of planning control. This workshop is aimed at staff who are either directly involved in enforcement work or who wish to have a contextual understanding of the system. It is designed for relatively new or less experienced enforcement staff but will also provide a useful “back to basics” review for those who have been in the role for some time but who have not have had much formal training.  Specific aspects covered will include: what is a breach of planning control; is there any unauthorised development; the complexity of the immunity rules; how to deal with complaints; evidence collection; and effective use of some of the key elements of the enforcement toolkit.
