Planning Enforcement update – Winter 2016/16

In line with government guidance, the key focus of the Lambeth team is to resolve cases informally without recourse to costly and time-consuming formal action – this is how the majority of cases our solved.

In terms of activity in Thurlow Park at a property along Croxted Road officers negotiated the removal of excessive noisy air-conditioning units from a residential property.

Otherwise, a large residential property on Norwood Road was in a dilapidated state and has been left empty for many years. As a result, formal section 215 notices were served requiring a range of remedial works to the premises. This will ensure the condition of the property is drastically improved and is hopefully brought back into residential use.

If you have any planning concerns please let us know.
