An Article 4 Direction is a special planning regulation that gives additional planning control in a particular location (like a conservation area). It removes the permitted development rights for works like extensions, porches, replacement windows and doors, or painting the exterior of a building.
Article 4 Directions apply in the following three cases:
- under article 4(1) - to listed buildings only
- under article 4(1) - to other buildings
- under article 4(2) - to dwelling houses in conservation areas
