Planning Enforcement

In response to the latest Government advice in relation to COVID-19, Breckland Council is taking the decision to temporarily suspend all face-to-face consultations with our Planning and Building Control departments. This will take effect from Thursday 19 March until further notice.

Anyone wanting planning and building control advice can still do so by emailing either planning@breckland.gov.uk (Planning) or buildingcontrol@breckland.gov.uk (Building Control) with your query.

We apologise for any inconvenience to those affected.

Planning Enforcement investigates possible breaches of planning control and aims to resolve these using the most appropriate means (from negotiation to formal enforcement action). When development takes place without permission, the Council has a full range of enforcement powers available to establish whether a breach of planning control has taken place, what harm is caused as a result of the breach and how to remedy the situation.
