CONFIRMATION NOTICE OF THE BOROUGH WIDE ARTICLE 4 DIRECTION MADE UNDER ARTICLE 4(1) OF THE TOWN AND COUNTRY PLANNING (GENERAL PERMITTED DEVELOPMENT) (ENGLAND) ORDER 2015 (“THE ORDER).

DIRECTION RELATING TO HOUSES IN MUTIPLE OCCUPATION HMO’s – BOROUGH WIDE (BARNSLEY METROPOLITAN BOROUGH)

Barnsley Metropolitan Borough Council confirmed the Borough Wide Article 4(1) Direction on 24th  June 2021, under Article 4(1) of the Town and Country Planning (General Permitted Development) (England) Order 2015.

The Article 4 Direction (Article 4 Direction 1/2020) relates to development consisting of a change of use of a building from a use falling within Class C3 (dwellinghouses) of the Schedule to the Town and Country Planning (Use Classes) Order 1987 (as amended) to a use falling within Class C4 (houses in multiple occupation) of that Schedule, and removes permitted development rights for this type of development from 24th June 2021.

Planning permission will therefore be required for change of use from Class C3 to Class C4 once the Borough Wide Article 4 Direction is in force. The Direction applies to the entire Barnsley Metropolitan Borough.

A copy of the Direction (Article 4 Direction 1/2020), including a map defining the area to which the Direction relates can be viewed at the Council’s Offices, Westgate Plaza 1, Barnsley, South Yorkshire S70 9EZ during business hours. Electronic copies are available on request by e-mailing developmentmanagement@barnsley.gov.uk
