Planning Enforcement Policy

Published: 14/12/2018

 Flintshire County Council’s Cabinet will be asked to approve a revised version of the Planning Enforcement Policy when it meets on 18 December.

The revised Policy gives clarity about the criteria the Council will take into account when considering the circumstances in which it will take enforcement action. It now gives clear and transparent reasons to those against whom action may be taken.

The draft policy has been through Scrutiny Committee and has been subject of a 6 week public consultation which was extended due to the multiple requests of clerks from Town and Community Councils.

Flintshire County Council’s Cabinet Member for Planning and Public Protection, Councillor Chris Bithell, said:

“The Policy was discussed by the Planning Strategy Group in October where it was well received and, subject to minor amendment, was recommended for adoption. It was agreed, at that meeting, that members will meet the enforcement officers following publication of the policy and a training session on Planning Enforcement will be organised for all councillors.”
