Planning Enforcement

The Planning Enforcement Service investigates alleged breaches of planning control and monitors conditions attached to planning conditions.   Planning laws are designed to control the development and use of land and buildings in the public interest. 

North Norfolk District Council operates its enforcement activities within government guidelines as set out in the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) published in March 2012, and in accordance with the Council's policy as set out in the Local Development Framework Core Strategy.

This document outlines the Planning Enforcement Service.

Use the menu options on the right hand side of this page to find out how to make a complaint or appeal an enforcement notice.

If you believe unauthorised work to protected trees and hedges is being undertaken, you should contact the Council's Conservation, Design and Landscape section in writing or, in urgent cases telephone 01263 516142.
