The new edition of Planning Enforcement is now live for subscribers to Planning Law.

Planning enforcement is one of the most diverse and complex areas of law. It is primarily concerned with the taking of steps against development carried out without planning permission or in breach of conditions of a planning permission.

This new edition is essential reading for barristers and solicitors specialising in planning law, planning officers and consultants and academics, the key topics explored and analysed in this edition include:

  • enforcement notices, stop notices, temporary stop notices and breach of condition notices
  • the parallel enforcement provisions for listed buildings, conservation areas and the remainder of the historic environment and hazardous substances
  • enforcement powers for planning obligations, trees, tidying up land and advertising
  • the Community Infrastructure Levy and the development consent regime for nationally significant infrastructure projects
  • the Human Rights Act as decisions to carry out enforcement are affected by the Act as well as a raft of duties such as the Public Sector Equality Duty and responsibilities towards children
  • appeals, injunctions and High Court challenges

The book includes full coverage of planning enforcement in England, Wales and Northern Ireland.

Planning Enforcement, 3rd Edition, complements Planning Permission and Planning Policy, offering a comprehensive and authoritative Bloomsbury Professional library for the planning practitioner.
