Planning Enforcement

Planning enforcement deal with cases where development has been carried out without permitted development rights or planning permission, unauthorised advertisements, tree protection, and non-compliance with conditions attached to planning approvals.

Report an Issue or Concern

Swale’s Planning Enforcement Strategy can be found here.

If you are concerned about a development near you which you think does not have planning permission, you can tell Swale planner or ask them about it by using their online enforcement complaint form.

Alternatively, you can contact them by post

Planning Enforcement
Planning Services
Swale Borough Council
East Street
Kent ME10 3HT

If you wish to draw your concerns to the attention of the Society please email chair@favershamsociety.info

The Council assures complainants that all complaints will be dealt with confidentially.

Where unauthorised development has taken place, the Council may take enforcement action. This is a discretionary power, which Government states should only be undertaken if the Council would not have granted planning permission had an application been submitted.

Enforcement Notices

These are legal documents which can be served on people who have built something without the required permissions. A notice could:

  • Stop or prevent an activity
  • Request the removal of an unauthorized building or extension
  • Ask for a development to be changed to make it more acceptable
