Planning Enforcement

Planning Enforcement

Winchester City Council places great importance on protecting its communities, its heritage and the natural environment from unauthorised development that causes harm. An effective planning enforcement service is an important means of achieving this goal, and maintaining the integrity of the planning system. We achieve this by investigating all complaints that are not anonymous and by prioritising cases that are causing the most harm. We have set out the service on the following pages and in our Local Enforcement Plan, which we recommend you read before engaging with the Enforcement Team. Please be aware the investigation and remedy of cases can often be a very lengthy process.
