An enforcement notice is a legal document that can be issued when there has been a breach of planning control. Such a breach is defined in the Town and Country Planning Act 1990 as development carried out without the proper planning permission, or failure to comply with a condition or limitation on permitted development rights.

- How to appeal against the notice.
It is an offence not to comply with a notice once the compliance period has expired. Where a conviction for failure to comply with a notice is successful, planning authorities can apply for Confiscation Orders to recover any financial benefit obtained through the development which was unauthorised.
The authority also has the power to enter land to carry out the notice requirements themselves if other steps have proven unsuccessful in getting the land owner or occupier to carry out the notice requirements. It is an offence to obstruct anyone exercising such powers.
