Planning Enforcement Policies

Last updated on: 09-Apr-2021

2. Areas of Special Protection

There is a range of policy notation and designation for areas warranting special protection through the planning system. In particular the Metropolitan Green Belt, the Kent Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Conservation Areas, Sites of Special Scientific Interest and other designations such as Special Landscape Areas will all be given special protection through planning enforcement.


Areas of Special Protection will be given particular protection through planning enforcement and, when public amenity is adversely affected, action will normally be taken against contraventions.
