While the Planning Department may be aware of breaches of planning control, there is also a role for the public in alerting us to unauthorised development. You can write, email or telephone us using the contact details provided below. You will need to provide information in relation to:
- the location of the alleged breach;
- a description of the development, works or other activities that constitute the alleged breach;
- the person or business suspected of carrying out the breach (if known); and
- any other information that may help with our investigation
You do not have to provide your name and contact details unless you want to be informed of the outcome of the investigation. If you do provide these details, we will protect your identity in accordance with the Environmental Information Regulations 2004 and the Data Protection Act 1988. We may, however, be asked to disclose your details if the case goes to court, in such cases we will contact you in advance to provide advice in relation to this matter.
