Local planning authorities have broad powers to impose conditions on grants of planning permission as they see fit to enhance the quality of the built environment and mitigate the adverse effects of a development, providing they are necessary, proportionate and relevant to planning and the development. This can include to help reduce impacts associated with noise, environmental pollution and other disturbances that arise during the construction process. Local planning authorities have a range of planning enforcement powers to take action against non-compliance with conditions.
