9. Enforcement Activity
Enforcement covers the actions that can be taken when developments happen without permission or when conditions have not been followed. There can be a variety of actions that are taken. Authorities have powers to serve notices asking for more information about a development. They can stop a development that does not have permission, or where the development does not follow the conditions attached to the permission which was granted. The Authority can also issue a fixed penalty or refer the matter to the Procurator Fiscal.
The total number of enforcement cases taken up in 2018/19 was 5,447. There were 540 notices served, three reports to the Procurator Fiscal and no cases resulting in prosecution. (Annual, 2018/19: Table 32).
