Minutes:

Breaches of Control: Without planning permission, the construction of a two storey rear extension.

 

Resolved:-

 

That ENFORCEMENT ACTION be AUTHORISED to:

 

a)    secure the removal of the 4.2m deep unauthorised two storey rear extension to comply with the plans approved under application ref 14/00379/FUL.

 

b)   remove from site all materials resulting from compliance with a) above

 

The authorised enforcement action to include (if/as necessary) the service of an Enforcement Notice under Section 172 of the Act and the pursuance of proceedings whether by prosecution or injunction to secure compliance with the requirements of the Enforcement Notice.

 

When serving an Enforcement Notice the local planning authority must ensure a reasonable time for compliance. In this case a compliance period of 3 months is considered reasonable for the removal of the unauthorised extension and enlarged hard surface area.

 

Taking enforcement action in this case may amount to an interference with the owners’ and/or occupiers’ Human Rights. However, it is necessary for the local planning authority to balance the rights of the owners and/or occupiers against its legitimate aims to regulate and control land within its area. In this particular case it is considered reasonable, expedient, and proportionate and in the public interest to pursue enforcement action on the grounds set out in the formal recommendation.
