Planning enforcement pilots

Monitoring development sites

Development sites need to be well run and comply with regulations. It's our responsibility to investigate any alleged cases of unauthorised development and pro-actively monitor development sites.
 
Our pilot team are responsible for a number of important development sites in the borough and they work to uphold the Council's enforcement policies.

They regularly monitor sites and take a zero tolerance approach to enforcement breaches.

Kensington enforcement pilot

There are over 20 construction sites in Kensington that have a construction traffic management plan. These sites have been selected either due to their size or close proximity to other nearby development sites.

Report an enforcement issue

If you want to report an enforcement issue or complain about any of these sites, contact us:

Supporting evidence

You need to supply supporting evidence with your complaint such as photographs or videos that are time and date stamped. This will enable us to serve a notice or prosecute an enforcement breach.

Evidence must demonstrate beyond doubt that there's been an enforcement breach. For example if a construction vehicle is entering a site out of agreed hours you would need to document:

  • the vehicle entering the site
  • its registration plate
  • or speak to the driver for verbal confirmation if you can't take a photo or video

If you submit evidence you may need to provide a witness statement and/or act as a witness for the prosecution in court.
