TOWN AND COUNTRY PLANNING (GENERAL PERMITTED DEVELOPMENT) ORDER 1995 AS AMENDED – ARTICLE 4
Notice of Direction – 21 January 2015
Article 4 Direction removing permitted development rights from properties within Chatsworth Road Conservation Area
I write in relation to the Council’s decision to serve notice of an Article 4 Direction on Chatsworth Road Conservation Area which is situated within your ward. The need to serve an Article 4 Direction to the Chatsworth Road Conservation Area was established through the production of the Chatsworth Road Conservation Area Appraisal and Management Plan Supplementary Planning Document which was adopted in April 2013. This document identified threats to the conservation area’s special character as a result of minor development, some of which can be carried out under permitted development rights. The proposed removal of permitted development rights include:
• The extension, improvement or other alteration of a dwellinghouse
• All alterations to the roof of a dwellinghouse
• The construction of a porch outside any external door of a dwellinghouse
• The provision within the curtilage of a dwellinghouse of hard surfaces
• The erection, construction, maintenance, improvement or alteration of a gate, fence, wall or other means of access to a highway
• The painting of the exterior of any building or work
• The installation of solar PV or solar thermal equipment (solar panels).
The Direction and all associated information is available on the Croydon Council website on the following link: www.croydon.gov.uk/chatsworth
Hard copies of the Direction and accompanying maps can be viewed at:
• Croydon Central Library (during normal opening hours) and;
• Bernard Weatherill House (Access Croydon), 8 Mint Walk, Croydon, CR0 1EA (9am -4pm, Monday to Friday).
