Planning Breaches

If you notice any breaches of planning, please contact us as we can evaluate the breach and make a formal complaint.

Residents are also entitled to complain privately to planning.enforcement@southampton.gov.uk 

Please not that if you notice an apparent breach that is currently or about to be taking place and so requires immediate action you should notify OTRA right away as we are able to make contact directly with the officer, without going through the slower channel via the above email link.

We have been asked that residents should use OTRA as a single point of contact in these “emergency” situations rather than contacting individual officers yourselves.
