Why action may not be taken
In some cases it is not possible for the Council to take action on unauthorised building work. Often, this is because the work is 'permitted development' or took place so long ago that it is now immune from planning enforcement action.
We will only take action if this would be in the public interest, for example, if the breach of planning control would unacceptably affect the public or the existing use of land and buildings.
If we do not take action we will let you know the reasons why.
