Article 4 Directions

» Map showing Article 4 Directions »

An Article 4 direction is made by the local planning authority.  It restricts the scope of permitted development rights either in relation to a particular area or site, or a particular type of development anywhere in the authority's area. 

Where an Article 4 direction is in effect, a planning application may be required for development that would otherwise have been permitted development. 

Article 4 directions are used to control works that could threaten the character of an area of acknowledged importance, such as a conservation area. This enables the council to control these minor developments so as to ensure that they accord with its policies to protect the character of a Conservation Area or the visual amenities of other areas and prevent developments that do not accord with those policies.
