An order for administrative coercion can be imposed if a shed has been illegally constructed, therefore without permission. The Board of Mayor and Aldermen can chose to have the building demolished, if the offender does not do so within the period set. The costs incurred will then be on the account of the offender. Before one proceeds with the actual implementation of administrative coercion, the offender, subject to the exception of very urgent cases, must be informed of the decision about the breach and of the period in which the offender must personally remedy the breach.
VAN LEEUWEN LAW FIRM has a wealth of experience in remedial sanctions, orders for administrative coercion and orders subject to a penalty as well as the administrative fine as punishing sanction. If you are confronted with enforcement, also for example after a period permitted by the public body, in most cases the possibilities of notice of objection and appeal are open to you. It is important to contact us in a timely manner, because in most cases a final deadline of six (6) weeks applies for the notice of objection or lodging of an appeal.
