What happens is a complaint has been made about me?

If you have breached planning control you may be given the opportunity to apply for retrospective planning permission and we will guide you as to whether we feel you might get it. It is in your interest to apply as any unauthorised extensions, for example, could cause problems if you sell your home in the future.

If you have breached planning control and we don't feel you would get permission you will be asked to put the situation right, e.g. by stopping the use or pulling down or reducing the size of an unauthorised building.

If you do nothing to put the situation right, then we may consider taking formal action.
