Enforcement Policy

The integrity of the development control process depends on the local planning authority's readiness to take effective enforcement action. There are a range of actions available to the local planning authority, but these are discretionary powers. Any action must be in the public interest and always commensurate with the breach of planning control that has occurred.

Our policy and procedures document sets out what individuals and organisations can expect from Sandwell Council in the undertaking of its planning enforcement functions.
