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 commencing any works and/or alterations to the property.
