Developer prosecuted over planning breach

A property developer has been fined over a thousand pounds for failing to meet the conditions of an accepted planning application.

Hastings Borough Council successfully prosecuted Connor Developments (UK) LLP, of 28 Wilton Road, Bexhill, after the firm failed to comply with a Breach of Condition Enforcement Notice within six months of it being served.

Connor Developments was required to comply with conditions four and five of the granted planning application, which required provisions for traffic calming features and an adoptable footpath and pedestrian crossing point to recreational land on a 10-home development in Hastings.

Councillor Kim Forward, Lead Member for Development Control at Hastings Borough Council, said: “This result is excellent news and very important as conditions such as these are critical for people living near the new developments.

“Such conditions are a key aspect of many permissions and this delivers a strong message that violations will not be tolerated."

On 17th June, Eastbourne Magistrates Court ruled that Connor Developments must pay £950 for each offence, £432 costs and a £120 victim surcharge.
