Report unauthorised development
If you think someone is developing land in Newham without our permission, you can report it online.
You can also call the duty planning officer on 020 3373 8300 between 9am and 12 noon, Monday to Friday). Or you can write to us at:
London Borough of Newham
1000 Dockside Road
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.
