Article 4 Direction: Four Ashes, High Wycombe

An Article 4 Direction limits the works that can be carried out without needing planning permission from the council.

Often some work can be done without needing to speak to the council, such as minor alterations to a house. This is called 'permitted development'.

An Article 4 Direction removes these 'permitted development' rights and allows the council to establish further control over development.
