An Article 4 direction removes various forms of permitted development right normally associated with a property. The reasons for the directions are normally to prevent development that would harm the character of the area. There are three Article 4 directions which control changes of use from Class C3 (family dwelling) to C4 (house in multiple occupation). Permitted Development Rights to extend, alter or change the use of a property can also be removed on individual developments by means of a planning condition.
