National Association of Planning Enforcement (NAPE) Annual Conference 2017

9th November 2017

Planning enforcement officers provide a critical function at the sharp end of the planning system. The structure of the presentation addresses the following three issues:

  • The value and importance of planning enforcement.
  • Enforcement considerations in planning policy and practice, with a particular focus on the current planning review of the planning system in Scotland.
  • Key challenges facing planning enforcement today in the context of local authority budgetary cuts, but equally a rise in the planning fees.
