To extend the period of compliance for Enforcement Notice (ENF/18/0246) by 1 further month. A request has been made by the contravener that such a short extended period would allow them to sort out a new lease at new premises as they are in the process of moving and they request a little more time to organise and carry out the restoration work in order to comply with the enforcement notice in the extended time period requested. The original period of compliance was 18 months (ending 13th May 2021) and an extended 5 month period was approved on 13th Sept 2020 under delegated powers with the period of compliance ending 13th October 2021.
With this further one month request the new extended period of compliance would be ending 13th November 2021.
This decision is taken under delegated powers set out in Paragraph 145 of the Officer Scheme of Delegation in the Council’s constitution, which grants delegated authority “To undertake all action in order to regulate any actual, perceived or potential breach of any of the Town and Country Planning Legislation including: … (d) to determine whether or not to amend and/or withdraw any notice”.
This authority has been delegated to me through the Local Scheme of Nomination for the Executive Director for Place.
To allow a further one month reasonable compliance period, in light of the request that the contravener needs additional time to finalize alternative premises.
No alternatives considered but the extended period will allow alternative premises to be sourced by the contravener.
Not applicable as no members consulted.
