Abstract

Discusses whether the provisions of the Localism Act 2011 s.124 granting powers to take planning enforcement action outside the normal time limits in cases of concealed development are an effective response to the problem. Considers how the detection of concealed developments might be improved and the benefits of introducing a requirement of honesty in planning applications. Examines alternatives to s.124, including invoking existing legislative powers, implementing the Town and Country Planning Act 1990 more effectively and developing the public policy arguments used in relevant cases.
