Employment land Article 4 direction

A number of employment sites in Aldershot and Farnborough are covered by an Article 4 direction. This removes some permitted development rights.

The pdf icon Employment land Article 4 direction [12Mb] removes permitted development rights that allow developers to change the use of offices, storage or distribution units, or light industrial units to homes without planning permission.

Between 10 February and 24 March 2017, we held a consultation and invited your views on the Article 4 direction. After reviewing the responses received, we decided that the direction should come into force. We confirmed the direction on 25 May 2017.

Our arguments for introducing the Article 4 direction

We believe it is important that Aldershot and Farnborough have a strong portfolio of employment sites to support and encourage economic growth and that the Article 4 direction will help retain and attract businesses, jobs and investment.

Our arguments for introducing the Article 4 direction are set out in our pdf icon Cabinet report on Article 4 direction for employment land [592kb] of 15 November 2016.
