Planning Enforcement Policies

Last updated on: 09-Apr-2021

6. Private disputes and non-planning issues

Very often "bad neighbour" disputes are expressed as complaints to the council and requests for planning enforcement. If there are private, or civil law solutions to these complaints, the council does not become involved. Similarly, if other enforcement or regulatory agencies are empowered to control a situation, the council will not duplicate such other action.


Private disputes and matters properly controlled by other agencies will not be the subject of enforcement action.
