Therefore, Planning Permission must be applied for various items. Applications do not incur a fee. For general advice as to what replacement items/changes may be appropriate, refer to Article 4 Directions - Advisory Note to Residents (pdf - 275kb).

East Street Article 4 Direction

There is a further Article 4 Direction that covers three properties on East Street, Epsom, namely Adelphi Court, Nos. 1-3; Crossways House, No. 29, and Bradford House, No. 29A. This Direction was made in 2013 in response to the Government's changes to Permitted Development Rights allowing the conversion of B1 office use to C3 residential use without the need for planning permission. The three sites covered by the Article 4 Direction were deemed to be of significant strategic importance and therefore this Permitted Development Right was removed.
