If you carry out development without planning permission
A planning enforcement officer may visit your property to inspect the development to determine if a planning breach has occurred. Help them by providing information and co-operating with the investigating officer. This will ensure a quicker investigation and enable them to give you accurate planning advice.
If the officer concludes that no planning breach occurred, the investigation will be closed. If the officer determines that there is a planning breach, it will be confirmed in writing to you and advise you of the steps you must take to correct it.
