In this book, the author examines the PAC's approach to Planning Enforcement in Northern Ireland. He sets out the various grounds on which an Enforcement Notice can be quashed with many interesting examples from actual cases. A useful reference book for legal and planning practitioners.
Bill Morrison, planning consultant comments "Every enforcement official will want to keep a copy of this by the bedside, but the real value in the book is for practitioners looking to inform clients and mount well-supported argument at appeal. A better understanding of the PAC approach helps everyone involved in the process.
