Article 4 Directions

Local planning authorities use Article 4 Directions to remove specific permitted development rights in all or parts of a local authority's area. The Article 4 Directions in Southwark are listed on the other parts of this web article.

When permitted development rights are removed in a local area, anyone wishing to carry out the described development will need to submit a planning application. The planning application will then be assessed against the relevant policies in the development plan and any supporting guidance.

Please note that Article 4 Directions do not apply retrospectively to permitted development already undertaken

Permitted development rights

You can find more information about permitted development rights on the Planning Portal, the national website for basic planning information.
