Overview of Planning Enforcement Responsibilities

Date published: 31 October 2016

The Department for Infrastructure has today issued an advice document entitled the ‘Overview of Planning Enforcement Responsibilities’.

It provides an overview of planning enforcement responsibilities in Northern Ireland and seeks to inform users of the planning system that, following the transfer of most planning functions to district councils on 1 April 2015, a council has the primary responsibility for planning enforcement in its given administrative area.

This document, along with other guidance and practice notes, can be found under the Planning Guidance section.
