St Edmundsbury Article 4 Directions

What restrictions are there on building work?

Some permitted development rights are restricted under what is known as the Article 4 Direction. Permitted development is building work, alterations, or other forms of development such as the change of use of land which can be carried out without planning permission.

In the St Edmundsbury Borough the Article 4 Directions relate to conservation areas.

The Article 4 Direction applies to specific alterations for buildings. It also only affects alterations that are made on parts of the building that face highways, public space or public footpath.
