Article 4 direction

An Article 4 Direction was introduced in 1948, to control development by removing permitted development rights for works to land or forecourts fronting the promenade.

This means that you should seek planning permission for any work to properties to which the Direction relates.

Before starting work

You should contact the built heritage and conservation team for advice before starting any works to clarify whether planning permission is required.

Works carried out without the relevant planning permission will be liable to enforcement action.
