Article 4 Directions

Article 4 Directions are a planning tool that removes Permitted Development rights which would otherwise enable specified classes of alteration, or changes of use to be made to an existing building without the need for planning permission. Where an Article 4 Direction is in place, planning permission is required to undertake the specified alteration or change of use. The Directions listed below are those which have come into force since 2000.

Manor Royal Specific Article 4 Directions

Offices (B1)(a) to Residential (C3), and Storage and Distribution (B8) to Residential (C3)

On 29 July 2016, we confirmed the making of Directions at Manor Royal under Article 4(1) of the Town and Country Planning (General Permitted Development) Order 2015. The Directions remove permitted development rights that previously allowed the change of use of buildings from Office (B1a) or Storage & Distribution (B8) to residential use (C3) without the need to obtain planning permission. The Article 4 Directions apply to the Manor Royal main employment area as identified on the Local Plan Map and as set out below. This means that inside the Manor Royal main employment area, planning permission is required where any change of use of buildings from Office (B1a) or Storage & Distribution (B8) uses to Residential use is proposed.

Light Industrial (B1c) to Residential (C3)

On 16 October 2017, we confirmed the making of a Direction at Manor Royal under Article 4(1) of the Town and Country Planning (General Permitted Development) Order 2015 (as amended). The Direction removes a temporary permitted development right that previously allowed the change of use of buildings from light industrial (B1c) to residential use (C3) without the requirement to obtain planning permission. The Article 4 Direction applies to the Manor Royal main employment area as identified on the Local Plan Map and as set out below. This means that inside the Manor Royal main employment area, planning permission is required where any change of use of buildings from light industrial (Class B1c) to residential (Class C3) use is proposed.

Land at Westfield Place

On 10 December 2004, we confirmed the making of a Direction at Land at Westfield Place under Article 4(1) of the Town and Country Planning (General Permitted Development) Order 2015 (as amended). The Direction removes permitted development rights that would otherwise allow the erection, construction, maintenance, improvement or alteration of a gate, wall, fence or other means of enclosure.
