About the Planning Enforcement Plan consultation

The draft planning enforcement plan sets out how planning enforcement is delivered in the East Riding of Yorkshire in order to control harmful development and to maintain trust in the planning system. 

The plan sets out the principles and priorities underpinning the service and provides an explanation of the processes to monitor development and to control unauthorised development. 

The consultation is intended to encourage feedback on the plan and to increase understanding of planning enforcement to ensure that the service is accessible.

Why it has been produced

Local authorities are encouraged to produce a local enforcement plan to manage enforcement proactively in a way that is appropriate to their area. This should set out how they will monitor the implementation of planning permissions, investigate alleged cases of unauthorised development and take action where appropriate. View the National Planning Policy Framework 2018 on the GOV.UK website.

The plan is intended to provide clarity to all parties who may be involved in or affected by a planning enforcement issue.
