Enforcement policy

Formal notices

Certain legislation allows notices to be served requiring offenders to take specific action or cease certain activities. The time period stated on the notice will be reasonable.

Certain types of notice allow works in default to be carried out. This means if the notice is not complied with (known as a breach of notice) we may carry out the necessary works to satisfy the requirements of the notice ourselves. Where the law allows, we will normally recover our costs from the person / business served with the notice, through the courts if necessary. Every formal notice will be issued with clear guidance on your rights of appeal.
