More planning protection for Chorleywood Common

Three Rivers District council announced in late February of a new policy regarding planning within the Chorleywood Common conservation area. 

"The Council has introduced an Article 4(2) Direction, which means that residents of the Chorleywood Common Conservation Area will now have to apply for planning permission for certain alterations that were previously permitted development. This means that Planning Permission will be required to carry out any alterations to windows, chimneys, front boundary treatments and/or hardstanding to any property within the Chorleywood Common Conservation Area.

The Article 4(2) Direction came into force on 26 February 2010 and the Council will decide whether to make this permanent within six months. It is anticipated that the restrictions will be outweighed by the benefit of retaining as much character as possible in Chorleywood Common Conservation Area."

The Residents Association has been informed that occupiers of all properties that are affected by this change have been notified. The change effectively removes their permitted development rights  in this Conservation Area, and hence all development is subject to full planning controls.

Further information is available on the Conversation Areas planning webpage of Three Rivers District Council.
