Non-compliance with Planning Regulations
Although most people are careful to ensure that any work they have done is compliant with Planning Regulations – there are a few who carry out work without seeking planning permission.
Leeds City Council have a small team who investigate reported breaches known as Planning Compliance (or Planning Enforcement).
Once a quarter, they produce a report of the key cases they are investigating in the Harewood Ward.
