Article 4 Directions - Restrictions Affecting Householder Development
Article 4 Directions
Where areas would benefit from tighter controls over development than is provided for within the General Permitted Development Order, the Council can make Article 4 Directions in consultation with the local community. An Article 4 Direction removes the permitted development exemption so that all types of developments listed within the Direction will require the submission of a planning application and the granting of planning permission by the Council. Typically these are known as Article 4(1) Directions. Where areas of local heritage value require a higher level of protection in a Conservation Area, the Council can make an Article 4(2) Direction. Directions under Article 4(2) can only be made in respect of houses within Conservation Areas and do not require the Secretary of State's approval.
