About Planning Enforcement

Planning enforcement is one of the most diverse and complex areas of law. It is primarily concerned with the taking of steps against development carried on without planning permission or in breach of conditions on a planning permission. These powers are principally contained in Part VII of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990. They were heavily amended by the Planning and Compensation Act 1991. Subsequent amendments have been made in the Planning and Compulsory Purchase Act 2004 (introducing temporary stop notices) and the Localism Act 2011 (dealing with time limits and advertising enforcement).

Key topics explored and analysed in this edition include:

- the parallel enforcement provisions for listed buildings, conservation areas and the remainder of the historic environment
- similar provisions for hazardous substances
- a batch of powers in Part VIII of the TCPA 1990 on trees, tidying up land and advertising
- enforcement of planning obligations.
- the Community Infrastructure Levy and the new development consent regime for nationally significant infrastructure projects under the Planning Act 2008
- the Human Rights Act as decisions to carry out enforcement are affected by the Act as well as a raft of duties such as the Public Sector Equality Duty and responsibilities towards children.

Planning Enforcement, Third Edition complements Planning Permission and Planning Policy, offering a comprehensive and authoritative Bloomsbury Professional library for the planning practitioner.
