1. FORMAL ENFORCEMENT ACTION TRACKER
1.1 Report content
1.1.1 The Enforcement tracker report is intended to be brought to Planning Committee each quarter. The report provides the current status of enforcement cases that have had formal notices served.

Issue date – Date Notice was served
Effective date – Date the Notice takes effect from
Compliance date – Date the Notice is due to be complied with. This may change according to an appeal being lodged, which if the appeal is dismissed and the Notice is upheld the Inspector will impose a new compliance period from the date of the decision.

Blue – Cases closed since the previous tracker due to compliance
Red – In assessment and/or preparation for the next step of formal action;
Amber - Awaiting planning application/appeal decisions and compliance dates on Notices served;
