Article 4 directions

If you live somewhere that has an "Article 4 direction", you will require planning permission for certain development where normally it wouldn't be needed.

In Broadland there are 21 different Article 4 directions, a number of which apply to sites within the Broads Area. If you live in any of these areas and wish to make changes to your property, please contact us to discuss your plans and find out what to do next.

Article 4 directions are only in place where it is necessary to protect local amenity or the well being of an area.

If the only reason you need planning permission for a particular development is because of the existence of an Article 4 direction then such an application will not require a fee.
