Article 4 Directions
The London Borough of Haringey has made a number of Article 4 Directions which remove certain permitted development rights. This means that within those areas subject to an Article 4 Direction, you may have to apply for planning permission for works which normally would be permitted development. The Article 4 Directions in place are:
- Houses in Multiple Occupation (HMO)
This removes permitted development rights for the conversion of a dwellinghouse (Use Class C3) to a HMO (Use Class C4) and applies across most of the east of the borough.
- Warehouse to Residential
This removes permitted development rights for the conversion of storage and distribution centres (Use Class B8) to residential (Use Class C3) and applies to the borough's designated employment areas.
- Works within a Conservation Area
There are four Article 4 directions within Conservation Areas that remove permitted development rights such as alterations to windows and doors. Please view the Conservation page via the link above for further details.
