We cannot investigate anonymous complaints
We need as much information as possible in order to start investigating your complaint. An anonymous complaint will not be investigated.
When you report a breach of planning control, details of your complaint may become public. Your name and address will NOT be reported to the person or organisation involved in the alleged breach. We do not grant public access to our investigation files, so anything you send us will remain confidential. However, if formal action, such as the service of an enforcement notice or subsequent appeal or court action, is taken it may not be possible to keep your complaint confidential.
Investigating a complaint
Effective enforcement is vital to ensure that the character and amenity of the Borough are protected. All reports of possible breaches of planning are taken seriously and investigated as quickly and as thoroughly as possible. We will undertake an initial investigation within 10 working days, subject to the availability of officers, and the priority given to the case.
More serious breaches will be investigated immediately.
Examples of serious breaches
Examples include unauthorised works to a listed building and the felling of protected trees.
