Article 4 directions

Article 4 direction: Great Yarmouth

The Borough Council has confirmed an article 4 direction which will help prevent development that may undermine the local historic amenity and character within the centre of Great Yarmouth (unless planning permission is granted by the Council), by removing certain permitted development rights. These rights relate to:

  • installation and replacements of new doors and windows, alterations to roofs, and construction of new front porches on dwelling houses
  • erection, construction, maintenance, improvement, alteration, demolition or removal of any parts of gates, fences, walls and other forms of enclosure
  • the painting of the exterior of any building or work where it has been previously unpainted and where this fronts the highway

The direction was brought into force on 11 April 2022 and applies to the following conservation areas within Great Yarmouth:

  • King Street
  • Great Yarmouth Market Place, Rows and North Quay
  • parts of St Nicholas and Northgate Street

Please see below the article 4 direction and the associated map that defines the area to which the direction relates:

The article 4 direction was subject to a three-week public consultation that took place between Monday 14 February and Tuesday 08 March 2022. All comments received were taken into account when deciding whether to confirm the direction. A summary of the consultation responses can be found in the Development Control Committee report 30 March 2022 (opens new window). The Council was satisfied that no issues were raised through the consultation process that would have prevented the direction being brought into force on 11 April 2022.
