This Planning Enforcement Charter explains how the planning enforcement process works, our role and our service standards. It sets out the current powers available to planning authorities and the standards that North Lanarkshire Council has set.
Under planning legislation, we need to provide this Charter and review and update it every two years. By doing so we can ensure our service users have relevant information on our procedures, what to expect and what is required when they engage with the planning enforcement service.
To learn more about enforcement powers and for other useful contacts, you can view the appendices section of our Planning Enforcement Charter document.
