Planning Enforcement Manual

Alan Doyle

Published in May 2013, this book aims to provide a brief manual for those engaged in enforcement of planning law. It is written for the non-lawyer. The author has practised planning and environmental law for the past 20 years and has been involved in several hundred cases in the area.


This book, written by the country’s most experienced enforcer of Planning Law, interprets a morass of complicated legislation and incorporates it into a well written treatise which will be compulsory reading for anyone interested in enforcing planning law. It is written in a very lively and comprehensible style and will be easily understood by practitioners and students alike.

 This is a book by an enforcer who is convinced of the moral worth of what he is doing.
