Article 4 Directions remove some, or all, permitted development rights of an area. This means that some forms of development would require full planning application.
Article 4 Directions are only issued after careful consideration when it is felt that certain forms of uncontrolled development would harm the special character and amenity of an area, particularly where the development would be visible from the public highway.
Directions introduced within a Conservation Area are known as Article 4(1) Directions.
You can use My Maps to check whether an address is affected by an Article 4 Direction.
Please see our list of Frequently Asked Questions.
Each Direction is different, and places unique restrictions on works that can be carried out without needing planning permission. Some are available to download below, but if the one you are looking for is not listed, please contact us for full details.
