Government has recently expressed its concern about the impact that retrospective planning applications have on the public’s confidence in the planning system. In this paper POS tackles these concerns and looks at the wider enforcement system to set out changes that are designed to make it more effective and efficient. Changes are also recommended to improve the funding that enforcement services receive.
