297 Enforcement Tracker pdf icon PDF 336 KB


The Committee considered the enforcement tracker report which provided the status of enforcement cases where formal notices had been served.  The report also included a table showing Quarter 4 cases received/closed/live cases for 2021 and 2022 comparison and a chart showing Quarter 4 formal notices for 2021 and 2022 comparison.


In response to comments during the discussion, the Head of Planning and Development advised Members that:


Queries about specific enforcement cases should be raised with the Enforcement Team; and

There was a need to be more proactive in the approach to planning enforcement and the Council was currently in the process of recruiting a Landscape Conditions Compliance Officer.


It was pointed out that the tracker was incorrect in so far as Lested Farm, Plough Wents Road was in Chart Sutton, not Bearsted.


RESOLVED:  That the enforcement tracker as amended be noted.
