Wokingham Borough Council takes action against planning breaches


Wokingham Borough Council has successfully prosecuted a number of people across the borough in recent months for failing to comply with planning regulations.

The council experienced a fourfold increase in planning enforcement issues during 2011 and has substantially more in the pipeline this year.

Mark Cupit, head of development management, said: “I’m happy to say that most residents follow the correct planning application requirements or, if accidentally failing to do so, remedy this quickly when it comes to light.

“In these cases however, the council has had to follow a very lengthy and expensive exercise to ensure the correct outcome.

“I hope this gives due warning that Wokingham Borough Council will pursue those who blatantly ignore the council’s and national planning policies.”
