Site monitoring

Site monitoring visits

Our planning officers carry out regular monitoring visits to mineral extraction and waste landfill sites. These are to check that sites are:

  • complying with the terms of planning permission
  • progressing towards completion in the timescale permitted
  • restored once operations are complete

We monitor sites between one and four times a year, depending on the complexity of operations.

If a site is found to be in breach of planning permission, the operator will be asked to take steps to comply. The number of site monitoring visits may then be increased to ensure compliance. If non-compliance continues, enforcement action may be taken.

If you’re concerned a site may be in breach of planning permission, visit our Planning enforcement page to find out what you can do.

Records of site monitoring visits from the last 12 months are available online. Please select the relevant district from the list above.
