We investigate reported breaches of the Whittlesea Planning Scheme, planning permit conditions, the Planning and Environment Act, and Section 173 agreements.
Enforcement will occur when there is a clear breach, especially if it causes detriment to the community.
We aim to obtain compliance rather than prosecute offenders, but punishment for some types of offences may be necessary as a deterrent.
Our compliance process includes:
- verbal warning of a breach
- letters confirming the breach and requesting action (escalating)
