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.
If you live in an area that may be under an Article 4 Direction please contact us for full details on the specific types of restrictions that apply, as these vary from Direction to Direction.
