Article 4 Direction: Class E (commercial, business and service uses) to Class C3 (Dwellinghouses)

What do we want to know:

The Council made a non-immediate Article 4 Direction on 3rd August 2022 to remove the permitted development right to change the use of a building from a use falling within Class E (commercial, business and service uses) of the Town and Country Planning (Use Classes) Order 1987 (as amended) to a use falling within Class C3 (dwelling house)  of that Order.

This Direction, if confirmed by the Council, will come into force on 3rd August 2023 and will apply across parts of a number of retail centres in the Borough. Permitted development rights for this type of development will then be withdrawn and a grant of planning permission will be required.

You may make representations concerning the Article 4 Direction until 16th September 2022. 

Representations can be made by email to planning.policy@royalgreenwich.gov.uk

or by post to:  Planning Policy, Royal Borough of Greenwich, 5th Floor, The Woolwich Centre, 35 Wellington Street, Woolwich. SE18 6HQ

Please note that any representations received will be considered before the Council makes a decision whether or not to confirm the Direction.

All representations will be made publicly available.
