Article 4 Direction

To consider whether to implement an Article 4 direction to withdraw permitted development rights related to the change of use of offices, light-industrial units, and storage or distribution units to residential use within specific areas of the Borough. The proposed direction will enable the Council to protect its key employment sites by requiring developers to make a planning application for conversion of offices, light-industrial units, and storage or distribution units to residential use. Permitted development rights remove the requirement to obtain such consent from local planning authorities.
