Article 4 Directions
Article 4 Directions are a means by which a local planning authority can bring within planning control certain types of development, or changes of use, which would normally be permitted development (i.e. not require an application for planning permission).
An Article 4 Direction does not prevent the development to which it applies, instead it removes the right to carry out certain types of ‘permitted development’; if you want to do work that is covered by an Article 4 Direction you will first need to apply for planning permission.
All current Article 4 Directions in Doncaster are listed below and the areas they cover can be viewed on the Article 4 Interactive Map.
