Please note:

Planning enforcement will not get involved with neighbour disputes, investigation of land ownership, or boundary disputes (such as high hedges or boundary walls).


If you are involved in such a dispute, we advise that you try and resolve this dispute with your neighbour in a civil manner.


For more information on planning breach enforcement, please see the following link: http://www.wakefield.gov.uk/planning/planning/enforcement/about


High hedges

For information regarding high hedges please see the following link: https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/high-hedges


Boundary walls

This is not a planning enforcement matter. This is a civil matter and we advise that you seek out independent-legal or professional advice.


Before you start, you will need to tell us:

  • The type of planning breach that has occurred
  • If this breach has been reported previously
  • The exact location of the breach in question
