This document assesses the impact of a package of measures, including:
to create a power for local authorities to take enforcement action against certain breaches from the date on which they are discovered, rather than the date on which they occurred; and to increase the level of fine that can be incurred for failing to comply with Breach of Condition Notices
to limit the use of retrospective planning applications
to ensure that people who deliberately deceive the local planning authority about the nature of their intended development, or who conceal it until the window for enforcement action is past, are no longer able to profit from this practice
to extend the enhanced controls over advertisements that apply in London to enforcement authorities throughout the rest of England, in order to strengthen the enforcement system and improve consistency across the country
