Planning Strategy Team
Hertsmere Borough Council
The government has increased the amount of development which can be undertaken by householders without the need for a planning application (subject to certain limitations). This is known as ‘permitted development’ (PD) and now includes the ability to build an extra storey on top of one storey homes, up to a 3.5m increase in roof height. Two storey homes can be increased by a greater height.
The Radlett Neighbourhood Plan identified a number of bungalows as having individual and/or group value, and we are of the view that the kind of upwards extensions which are now PD could have a detrimental impact on the value of these bungalows and on the character of the area. In response we have made some Article 4(1) directions which removes the ability to make certain changes to those particular bungalows without first applying for planning permission.
An ‘Article 4 direction’ is a planning tool that can be used in local areas to remove PD rights for a particular type of development.
The introduction of Article 4 directions is intended to help manage change to the quality of the built environment where buildings have been identified of particular value. It is not intended to prevent all other changes including the ability to extend the identified bungalows, under other permitted development rights, such as conventional loft conversions.
