Draft Local Planning Enforcement Plan consultation

The draft Local Planning Enforcement Plan consultation was a chance for the public to express their views on a document that will guide planning control in Eden district.

As a planning authority we have a duty to investigate reported unauthorised development. We also have discretionary powers to take planning enforcement action.

The draft Local Planning Enforcement Plan which sets out:

  • How to report breaches of planning control;
  • How we will investigate reported breaches;
  • What advice we will provide and how;
  • When we will take action;
  • When we will not take action;
  • The legal powers we have and how we will use them.
