Stop notice in planning
A stop notice is an enforcement notice that can be issued by a local planning authority if they believe there is a breach of planning control, that is, where development is carried out without the proper planning permission, or where there is a failure to comply with a condition or limitation stipulated on permitted development rights.
Section 183 of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990 enables the local planning authority to serve a stop notice either alongside the serving of an enforcement notice, or afterwards. If the compliance period specified in the enforcement notice has expired, and the relevant activity continues, then a stop notice can be issued.
