Planning Enforcement Notices 2023

Mrs. O'Reilly made this Freedom of Information request to Carmarthenshire County Council Automatic anti-spam measures are in place for this older request. Please let us know if a further response is expected or if you are having trouble responding.

We're waiting for Mrs. O'Reilly to read recent responses and update the status.

Dear Carmarthenshire County Council,

In the year 2023 a number of 'Planning Enforcement Notices' were issued by the Council. Issuing a Notice is legally distinct from serving a notice and the information we are seeking is about the issuing of Notices.

Under the Freedom of Information Act please provide the following information:

For the year 2023 please provide the lawful delegated authority on which each 'Planning Enforcement Notice' was issued. Please also state who signed each Notice and if this was on behalf of someone else, please state this.
Please also provide a copy of the scheme of delegation that was in place for the year 2023.
If any Notice was issued without lawful recorded delegated authority please confirm this.
I believe that the information above related to 'Planning Enforcement Notices' should be publicly available, and that the information we are requesting can be disclosed without providing names of people served with these Notices.

Yours faithfully,
Mrs. O'Reilly

Dear FOIA team,

Please confirm when you will provide the rest of the information requested or explain why it is being withheld.

We clearly asked for you to provide the lawful delegated authority on which each planning enforcement notice was issued. We asked you to state who signed each notice and if this was on behalf of someone else.

We also requested that you provide a copy of the scheme of delegation that was in place for the year 2023.
In response to this request you have only provided a copy of an email from Rhodri Griffiths, which appears to give delegated authority to 'someone'. As this email is undated and does not include details of who the recipients were, it does not confirm who had the lawful delegated authority to issue these Notices.

This undated email from Mr Griffiths to unknown recipients is the only document you have provided so far, relating to the lawful delegated authority to issue enforcement notices in the year 2023.

Yours sincerely,

Mrs. O'Reilly
