Calderdale Engage: Community consultations

Proposed Article 4 Direction

Proposed Article 4 Direction


Results and Actions Taken Published


We are proposing to serve an Article 4 Direction in a defined area of Halifax. This will require a greater degree of planning control than would ordinarily apply. Planning permission will be required before a change of use from an office to a dwelling or from a dwelling to a house in multiple occupation can take place. The aim of the consultation is to seek the views of the public on this proposal.
