Permitted Development Rights

Permitted Development Rights also known as Article 4 Directions

Certain types of minor development can be carried out without planning permission. This is known as permitted development.

However, the Council has the power to prevent such development in order to maintain control over the way in which development is allowed to occur. This is done under Article 4 of the Town and Country Planning (Permitted Development) Order 1995 (Office of Public Sector Information).

Often, Article 4 directions are employed in Conservation Areas, where there is a threat to the amenity and quality of the built environment.
