Re: Re: retention – help!
Might just be a case whereby they decided that the development was not worthy of being dragged through the enforcement procedure, and having considered the outcome of the retention application, it was deemed counter-productive to pursue the matter…
(11) (a) A planning authority may for stated reasons by notice in
writing to any person served with the notice, and, where
appropriate, any person who made a representation
under section 152(1)(a), withdraw an enforcement notice
served under this section.
(b) Where an enforcement notice is withdrawn pursuant to
this subsection by a planning authority or where a planning
authority finds that an enforcement notice has been
complied with, the fact that the enforcement notice was
withdrawn and the reason for the withdrawal or that it
was complied with, as appropriate, shall be recorded by
the authority in the register.
