Enforcement notice quashed in Greenwich

Plainview Planning have successfully appealed an  enforcement notice for the alleged storage of motor vehicles.

The Inspector quashed the enforcement notice which had been served by the Royal Borough of Greenwich Council. He considered the description of the enforcement notice was flawed, and felt that amending the description would prejudice the appellant.

In addition to this, the enforcement notice included highway land which was outside the ownership of the appellant. It was not clear, for example, what would happen if motor vehicles and associated material owned by others were stored on the highway. We successfully argued that the appellant would have no ability to remove motor vehicles and associated material owned by other people.

Plainview provided full planning consultancy services, including initial feasibility review, negotiation with enforcement officers, preparing the appeal statements and liaising with the Planning Inspectorate.
