Have you checked if planning permission already exists? First, check to see if any permission exists for the development you wish to report. You can do this on our website using our planning search. For us to be able to fully investigate your concerns, we require as much information as possible from you.
Have you checked if planning permission is required for the work taking place? If not, please check using the planning portal website
Is the issue regarding any of the following?
- Boundary or ownership disputes
- Party wall issues
- Covenant issues
If so, these are civil matters so please contact the citizens advice bureau or seek legal advice. The Council is not a responsible authority for these matters.
To ensure that we effectively investigate alleged breaches of planning control we will:
All complaints made by private individuals or companies are kept confidential, your name will not be disclosed without your knowledge and agreement, unless we are legally required to do so.
Unless you have a good reason for not giving us your details, and explain why, anonymous complaints will not normally be investigated and cannot be reported online.
