What is Article 4 Directions?

There are additional controls called Article 4 Directions in place in most conservation areas.

These Directions control minor alterations that can cumulatively lead to the erosion of character and appearance but do not otherwise require permission.

Typical minor works covered by the Direction include the replacement of doors and windows, the erection of gates, walls and fences, sheds, garages, porches, etc.

Where an Article 4 Direction is in place, Planning Permission will be required for these works.
