FOI Request - Breaches of Planning Permission

Request 101003394018

1.  The number of times a breach of planning permission occurred

2.  The reason for the breach of planning permission

3.  The number of fines handed out and cost due to breach of planning permission

Can these be supplied for the years of 2023, 2022 and 2021.

Clarification sought and received 12-09-2023

Response 02-10-2023

1. 2021 - 372
2022 - 306
2023 (to date) - 295

2. As the reason for any breach of planning permission are determined on an individual basis we would have to look at each of the approximately 1000 cases. This task would cost the Council in excess of £600 of staff time. In accordance with section 12 of the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002 (excessive cost), we are therefore unable to comply with this part of the request.

3. Not held - no fines have been imposed. Information that is not held falls under Section 17 of the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002 - Information not held.
