This GPG is a response to a recommendation in the report of Robert Carnwath QC Enforcing Planning Control (1989), which said that the Government should consider preparation of a practice manual for local planning authorities on all aspects of planning enforcement work.
It covers best practice with regard to investigation, negotiation, drafting and procedure, appeals, prosecution, stop notices, injunctions, default action and other aspects of the system, and includes examples from actual cases.
The guide accompanies DoE Circular 10/97 Enforcing Planning Control: Legislative Provisions and Procedural Requirements.
