How to report a breach of planning control
It is not practical, nor is it expected that we will be aware of every breach of planning control so the public can play a vital role in reporting a possible breach and any concerns should be raised with us.
To report a breach of planning control, please use our online form. You will need to include:
- your name (we do not investigate anonymous complaints)
- your address
- details of what you are reporting
- the address or location of what you are reporting
- when did the work you are reporting take place
- who is responsible, if known
- any other information such as photographs and/or documents to provide more information on the work you wish to report.
Where we haven’t been given enough information to investigate a complaint, we will get back to you.
