Development Management is about controlling the way the environment around us is changed by people or companies who wish to build on it in some way. There are complex national laws and local guidelines in place to control how the development of our environment takes place.

The new Monitoring & Enforcement charter gives information on the procedures and the powers available to the Council to ensure the planning laws are upheld and the standards of service our customers can expect from the Development Management service. 

You can find out details of enforcement notices that have been issued in the area by using the links below to the Enforcement Register for that year.
