What is Planning Enforcement?

Runnymede Borough Council's Planning Enforcement Section seeks to deal with all reported breaches of planning control (that is to say, all instances where something requiring planning permission has taken place, without permission being obtained).

The Planning Enforcement section attends to all reports relating to:

  • unauthorised built development (new buildings, extensions and alterations to existing buildings, etc.).
  • unauthorised land uses (unacceptable uses in the Green Belt, businesses running from homes, etc.).
  • building works not in accordance with approved plans.
  • breaches of planning conditions.
  • illegal works to protected trees and listed buildings.
  • illegal advertisements.
  • illegal gypsy/traveller incursions.
  • neglected land and property that is an eyesore.
