Planning and Development Enforcement

Planning Enforcement

Unauthorised Development is development and /or use that is in breach of the planning laws.

We have a responsibility to ensure enforcement of the planning laws known as Planning Enforcement.

A development is unauthorised when:

  • Planning Permission is required and has not been obtained.
  • Planning Permission has been granted but the development is not been carried out in accordance with the plans lodged or conditions of the planning permission granted.
  • It does not comply with all the conditions and limitations to qualify a development as exempt.

If you want to make a complaint about unauthorised development fill in the Planning Enforcement Complaint Form and send it back to the address below. Please read the attached notes carefully before sending the form to us.
