Receiving an Enforcement Notice or a Planning Contravention Notice (PCN) can be very scary. This happens when the Council believes that building operations or the use of land has taken place without the correct planning permission in place. Because of this, they then tell you it is necessary to require the works or use to be reversed or modified. This can require the removal of expensive building operations, or for the use of land or buildings to stop, potentially restricting your income or livelihood.
Many enforcement cases can be fixed through talking to the Council, but also many then need to be challenged at appeal. ET Planning can review these cases for you, as well as negotiate on your behalf with your Local Planning Authority. If that negotiation is unsuccessful, we can help you to appeal against an enforcement notice with our expert team. If you have received an enforcement notice, please do get in touch with ET Planning today as time is quite critical (usually requiring a response within 21-28 days from the date the notice is served).
At ET Planning we have a team of experienced planning professionals who have spent much of their careers, dealing with the most complex enforcement matters and appeals for both Local Authorities as well as representing private clients. Don’t hesitate to get in touch to find out how we can help you. Whatever you do – don’t ignore an enforcement notice!
