You have to give your name and address when reporting it but the information is confidential – Rother will not reveal it to the landowner.
After you submit the form, Rother’s enforcement department will investigate. If they think that there has been a breach of planning, the landowner will be told that they must submit a planning application. This application will then be considered in the normal way, with the opportunity for the public to comment.
If planning permission is not granted, the landowner / developer can be forced to remove the building and reinstate the ground to its previous state. However, this would be the culmination of a long legal process.
