Stop Notices


Stop Notices

In extreme cases the Local Planning Authority may issue a Stop Notice in conjunction with an Enforcement Notice requiring the unauthorised activities to cease before the Enforcement Notice becomes fully effective.

Under certain circumstances a Temporary Stop Notice may be served when there has been a breach of planning control and the Council think that it is essential that the activity is stopped immediately. The Notice ceases to have effect after 28 days. A Temporary Stop Notice cannot be issued in respect of certain categories of development including the use of a building as a dwelling house or a caravan where that caravan is the main place of residence of the occupier of the caravan.

Furthermore, it is an offence to fail to comply with a Stop Notice.
