Planning compliance and enforcement

Our enforcement and compliance officers investigate situations where an alleged breach of planning control has taken place.

Planning enforcement and compliance involves the investigation of alleged breaches of planning control together with the monitoring of development sites and the monitoring of planning conditions and legal agreements.

Cheltenham Borough Council is committed to investigate possible breaches of planning control and unauthorised development. In accordance with the local enforcement plan we seek your help in bringing matters that concern you to our attention.  Please report a breach of planning using our online form. Letters and emails are also accepted. Complainants must provide their name and address before any complaint is investigated.  This will enable officers to update the complainant about the outcome of its investigation. Complainants' details are kept confidential.  Anonymous complaints will not be dealt with.
