What is a breach?

Carrying out development without planning permission, such as:

  • building an extension,
  • changing the use of a building,
  • doing works to a listed building,
  • demolition,
  • works to protected trees,
  • breaching conditions.

Before you report a breach to us, first check if there is planning permission.
