You can apply to us for confirmation that an Enforcement Notice has been complied with, or to request that it be withdrawn. Unless an Enforcement Notice is withdrawn, it will be revealed during a Local Authority Land Charges Search. Without written confirmation of compliance with an Enforcement Notice you may be at a disadvantage if you subsequently wish to dispose of an interest in land the subject of an Enforcement Notice and have no evidence of compliance, particularly if the development the subject of the Enforcement Notice comprises an important part of the valuation.
The application forms should be completed and sent to us, accompanied by the relevant fee and any plans/further information as necessary to process your request.
Currently the fee for this service is £150 to provide a full written response. We will endeavour to do this within 14 working days of validation, however, due to a high volume of requests along with reduced resource due to unforeseen absence, it may take slightly longer. Please be aware that your request will not be processed until ALL sections of the application form have been completed and the relevant fee received.
You can pay online or you can pay by cheque. Cheques should be made payable to Coventry City Council.
Once all necessary information has been submitted to us, the request will be validated and allocated to a case officer. An acknowledgement letter will be sent to you by post or e-mail, with details of the case officer who will deal with your request.
Officers will endeavour to deal with your request within 14 working days or 2 working days of validation depending on the service chosen. Please note that unless you provide details of a person who officers can contact in order to access the site the subject of an Enforcement Notice it may not be possible to provide a full response within the relevant timescales.
Please be aware that if the City Council declines to withdraw the Enforcement Notice or is unable to confirm that the Notice has been fully complied; or is unable to respond within the relevant timescale due to problems associated with accessing the site, the application fee paid will not be returned.
