Planning Enforcement

The Planning Enforcement section investigates and processes allegations of unauthorised development in accordance with the Planning & Development Act 2000, (as amended).

The Planning Enforcement section investigates and processes allegations of unauthorised development in accordance with the Planning & Development Act 2000, (as amended). Development is considered to be unauthorised when:

  • Planning Permission is required and has not been obtained.
  • Planning Permission has been granted but the development has not been carried out in accordance with the plans lodged or conditions of the planning permission granted.
  • It does not satisfy all the conditions and limitations so as to be considered as exempt development.

Please note that the planning authority may be statute barred from taking any enforcement action on unauthorised development if the statutory time limits have passed since the carrying out of the unauthorised development, as per section 157(4) of the Planning and Development Act 2000 (as amended).

It should also be noted that issues of land ownership or encroachment onto property or boundaries are civil issues and not matters that Planning Enforcement can take any action upon.
