Article 4 directions in York

An 'Article 4 Direction' is a special planning regulation we've adopted (as the Local Planning Authority) to provide additional powers over development in a particular location.

These regulations help us to introduce planning controls for minor developments and change of use to ensure we protect the character of our local area.
