Introduction to planning enforcement
This Charter explains how the enforcement process works, our role, the service standards we set, and what happens at each stage of what can be a lengthy process.
Enforcement is one of the most complex parts of the planning system. The aim of this Charter is to ensure that adopted procedures are fair and reasonable, and that interested parties are kept informed and are made aware of what is required.
This is an issue that concerns many members of the community. We hope you will find this Charter useful and will let us know if you think we could improve the service further.
This Charter sets out the current powers available to us. These powers are set out in the Town and Country Planning (Scotland) Act 1997 as amended by the Planning etc. (Scotland) Act 2006.
