Planning acts against unauthorised development

14 May 2010

The Planning and Environment Department has recently achieved success in the Magistrate’s Court with 2 convictions against unauthorised development. 

The first related to an unauthorised builder’s store in St Clement and the second to the unauthorised use of a shed for sleeping accommodation in the back yard of a guest house in St Helier.

Planning and Environment Chief Executive, Andy Scate said that the success in court was due to the teamwork between Islanders, who reported breaches to the department, and the professional investigations carried out by the enforcement team. 

Mr Scate added “I think the message that should go out from this is that people do notice what is going on around them. If you choose to breach the Planning and Building Law, the likelihood is that you will be found out and action will be taken against you.”
