Planning Enforcement Policies

Last updated on: 09-Apr-2021

4. Economic regeneration

This issue encompasses one of the conflicts central to planning enforcement. Breach of planning control may be causing a nuisance to residents, but may also be a useful component of the local economy. The balance which has to be struck must be guided, in particular, by the advice of National Planning Practice Guidance and the National Planning Policy Framework: planning enforcement is an action of last resort when there is actual harm to public amenity or public interest. The action should be commensurate with the breach.

EN5

Planning enforcement will be taken as an action of last resort when there is harm to public amenity or public interest. The function of a breach of planning control in the local economy will be a material consideration in that judgement.
