Article 4 directions

Within a number of Conservation areas, Allerdale Borough Council, as the local planning authority, has introduced Article 4 directions to individual properties.

What does an Article 4 direction mean?

This is a special form of planning control that the council has introduced to remove permitted development rights in order to prevent the loss of architectural features.

External works and/or alterations that would normally not require planning permission (re-rendering, replacement door and windows, re-roofing) may require it if the property has an Article 4 direction.

Use the map below to see if your property is covered by an Article 4 direction.

If so, it is always advisable to check with the planning department before starting any works and/or alterations to the property.
