Payments unavailable on Sunday morning (11 December)

Our payments supplier is carrying out essential maintenance on Sunday morning.

We have made an Article 4 direction to remove some permitted development rights in our town and district centres.

On 4 March 2022, we made an Article 4 direction to begin the process of removing the permitted development rights that allow developers to change the use of shops, restaurants, takeaways and other town centre uses to homes without planning permission.

The Article 4 direction covers parts of Aldershot and Farnborough town centres and North Camp district centre.

You can also see the areas covered in the Article 4 maps below:

Between 4 March and 25 March, we held a consultation and invited your views on the Article 4 direction.

We will now review all the responses received before deciding whether the direction should come into force.

Why we are introducing the Article 4 direction

Our arguments for introducing the Article 4 direction are set out in our case paper.

Our intention is that the direction will come into force on 6 March 2023.
