Permitted development rights give automatic deemed consent for certain developments without the need for express planning permission. These rights can be restricted through an ‘Article 4 Direction’. The effect of the Article 4 Direction is to revoke the permitted development rights and require planning permission to be obtained.
The following Article 4 Directions have been confirmed within the Yorkshire Dales National Park:
- 2017 Class PA of Part 3 of Schedule 2 - whole of park, light industrial - change of use to dwellings
- 2014 Class R* of Part 3 of Schedule 2 - pre-boundary extension of park (not the boundary extension area) - agricultural > flexible commercial uses
- 2003 Class A of Part 17 of Schedule 2 Settle-Carlisle Railway (not the boundary extension area) - telecommunications
- 1995 Class A of Part 2 of Schedule 2 Cracoe - means of enclosure
- 1993 Classes A, C and D of Part 1 of Schedule 2 Upper Settle - development within the curtilage of a dwellinghouse
- 1986 Class VI(1) of Schedule 1 Winterburn - agricultural development
- 1986 Class VI(1) of Schedule 1 Marrick - agricultural development
- 1984 Class VI(1) of Schedule Castle Bolton - agricultural development
* This Article 4 Direction was made under Class M of Part 3 of the 1995 General Permitted Development Order. In 2015, Class M of Part 3 was replaced by Class R of Part 3 within the 2015 General Permitted Development Order. The Article 4 Direction continues to have effect in relation to this class of permitted development irrespective of this change.
