Article 4 directions in York

Planned maintenance to the Planning Portal

Due to an upgrade to the Planning Portal between 9am and midday on Saturday 21 October, customers will be unable to view documents on the site during this time.

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, minor developments and change of use to ensure we protect the character of our local area.

The regulations remove 'permitted development rights' for certain minor alterations, extensions and changes of use, as set out in the direction, where normally an application for planning permission would not be required.

The effect of these Article 4 Directions is that planning permission is required for the specified minor developments and changes of use in the affected area(s).
