Minutes:

The Cabinet Member for Regeneration, Property and Planning, Councillor Shama Tatler, introduced the report seeking approval to proceed with the development of proposals for new Article 4 directions in local conservation areas. Cabinet were informed that the new directions were required to ensure planning policy reflected current guidance. It was emphasised that the directions would apply only to the façade and front garden of a building; public highways were not within the remit, with final approval of the directions based on a consultation period and subsequent support from residents.

 

Whilst welcoming the report, Cabinet were keen to ensure that the final wording of the example notice, as set out in Appendix One of the report, was made as clear as possible for local residents to understand.
