Planning compliance charter: contents and foreword

Contents

Foreword

As the Lead Member for Planning, Public Protection, Safer Communities and Domestic Abuse, I welcome the production and use of this very useful charter. This has been developed in consultation with our many City, Town and Community Councils across the County and aims to guide those involved in the planning compliance process. It is vitally important that the Council continues to take a proportionate approach to regulation, aiming to balance environmental protection with business support and growth. This charter provides helpful advice to those making complaints about potential breaches of planning control and to those who may have breached planning control. The planning compliance process is a complex and often time-consuming one. I hope that this charter guides those involved and manages expectations of the Council’s role therein.
