Agenda item

Urgent Business


The Head of Planning had one item to update the members on regarding Home Farm Sheldon.  The longstanding enforcement issues have recently been raised at the High Court in Birmingham.  The Authority had applied for a High Court injunction to seek compliance with the existing enforcement notices and to draw in further unauthorised works over the past few years. The judge upheld the application which now prevents further development and provides a strong legal basis to ensure compliance going forward and the Authority has been granted legal costs.


Thanks were given to the  Principal Enforcement Planner, who represented the Authority and to the Senior Lawyer Planning & Enforcement, who put the application together.
