Chris Black asked at Full Council last night how many planning enforcement cases were ongoing in Rochford District. The answer is 466 – a shockingly high figure.
The council has 2 full-time officers dealing with this, plus some other officers helping sometimes. To put it mildly, this seems inadequate. The council needs to arrange things better. The current situation is unfair on officers and unfair on residents.
