Report unauthorised development
If you think someone is developing land in Newham without our permission, you can report it online.
You can also contact us by email at [email protected]
Information you will need to provide when reporting a breach:
- The address of the property or land in question – without this we may not be able to investigate
- Details of what you think is wrong
- Your name and contact details
- Any other information, such as photos.
Confidentiality in planning investigations
When we investigate we will not give out your details at any time during the investigation. Unfortunately you cannot report a breach anonymously, except in very special circumstances. If you are concerned about giving your details, or have a reason not to, please speak to us first.
If the case is serious it may lead to a court case or an appeal, so we may ask you to be a witness. We will only ask you if we think your evidence is crucial to our case. This is rare, and normally it is up to you whether you want to be a witness or not.
