Development control - enforcement
The County Council has a duty to control development associated with mineral extraction and processing, the management of waste, and the County Council's own development. Some development may be authorised by a planning permission while other development may not require planning permission.
Our monitoring and compliance officers monitor authorised mineral and waste development to ensure that the development is in 'compliance' with the terms of the conditions attached to the permission.
Development that does not comply with the terms of a planning permission or is unauthorised is known as a 'breach of planning control'.
We investigate all possible breaches of planning control and, where necessary, take appropriate enforcement action.
If you suspect: (a) that planning conditions have been breached at a minerals or waste site or on County Council land; or (b) that unauthorised minerals or waste development is taking or has taken place, please contact us.
