Consultation by Bristol City Council:
Bristol’s Local Enforcement Plan: We are currently consulting on a Local Enforcement Plan to update our current Planning Enforcement Procedure Guidance Note June 2008.
The revised document takes account of changes in Government Legislation and Guidance and specifically responds to best practice advice on planning enforcement contained in the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) and the Planning Practice Guidance.
The Plan sets out the City Council’s priorities for investigation of alleged breaches of planning, explains what will be investigated and what will not.
It outlines the Council’s general discretionary powers with regard to planning enforcement and sets out the priorities for responses to complaints and the timescales for response by planning enforcement officers, along with explaining the assessments and considerations that are undertaken and actions and outcomes that may result following a report of an alleged breach of planning control.
It also explains our process of pro-active planning compliance monitoring.
The Draft Document can be viewed here, and if you have any comments please set them out in writing to firstname.lastname@example.org by 1st February 2016
PLEASE FORWARD THIS EMAIL TO OTHER MEMBERS OF YOUR GROUP WHO ARE NOT ON THE NPN MAILING LIST
