Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Regulations)

These Regulations amend the Town and Country Planning (Enforcement Notices and Appeals) Regulations 1991.

Regulation 2(1) deletes the requirement for the explanatory note accompanying an enforcement notice to include a copy of sections 171C and 171D of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990 (which relate to planning contravention notices rather than enforcement notices).

Regulation 2(2) amends the time limits for serving a local planning authority’s statement of submisssions on an enforcement appeal. This amendment only applies to appeals made on or after the coming into force of these Regulations ( Regulation 3 ).
