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 4 months is considered reasonable for the removal of the 1st floor side extension or its amendment to comply with the planning permissions specified at 7.1 d).
Taking enforcement action in this case may amount to an interference with the owners’ and/or occupiers’ Human Rights.

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.
