Brent serves more Planning Enforcement Notices than any other council in England

In the last quarter of 2019, councils in England served 987 Planning Enforcement Notices, Of these, 429 (44%) were served by the London boroughs.

Brent Council served 62 Notices, more than any other council in England.

Brent is our busiest borough for enforcement appeals. We help homeowners and developers who have fallen foul of the planning enforcement system. In some cases, we can work with the council to resolve enforcement problems. In others, we apply for retrospective planning permission. Often, we submit a planning appeal.

If you are facing enforcement action, it is very important that you seek professional advice. Enforcement Notices are very serious, sometimes requiring that you demolish part of your home.

Just Planning is an enforcement appeal specialist. If you receive an Enforcement Notice, contact one of our experienced planning consultants for free, impartial advice. You can email us at:
