Planning enforcement applications deal with situations where a development either doesn’t have the benefit planning permission or is not in compliance with the permission granted. This process involves the investigation, monitoring, and potential action taken by local planning authorities to rectify unauthorised forms of development or breaches of planning control.

What can SHW do for you

Evaluation of Situation: We assess the alleged breach of planning control or enforcement notice issued by the local authority against your property/land.


Legal Guidance: Providing advice on the enforcement notice, exploring your rights, and discussing potential solutions or courses of action.


Negotiation Support: Engaging with the local planning authority to negotiate a resolution or regularisation of any unauthorised form of development.


Representation: Acting as your representative during discussions with local planning authorities or potentially in appeal hearings.


Please use our Planning Enquiry Form if you would like further information.

Our method

Our aim is to guide you through the planning enforcement process, exploring options to address any alleged breach of planing control and working towards a resolution that aligns with both your interests and planning legislation/policies.


After an initial assessment to review the alleged breach, we will propose a suitable way forward. We will then devise a strategy which may involve negotiation with the local planing authority, submision of a planing aplication or preparation of an appeal application.
