Certain types of development, subject to some conditions, do not require full planning permission from us. These are called permitted developments.
Article 4 Direction can be used to remove specific permitted development rights in all or parts of the Sevenoaks District.
We have become aware of a piece of land that is being marketed north of Grove Road, Penshurst and it has been considered necessary to introduce Article 4 Directions.
There is a Direction removing permitted development rights for gates, fences and walls; means of access to a highway; temporary buildings and structures and temporary use of land. This has immediate effect. This Directions came into force on Thursday 15 October. 2020.
There is another Direction proposing to remove permitted development rights for the use of land as a caravan site and this does not take effect immediately. This Directions, if confirmed, will come into force on Thursday 12 November 2020.
You can also view scanned, signed versions of the Direction documents. Please be aware, these will not work with screen reader technology.
You can comment on the Article 4 Direction(s) between 15 October 2020 and 5 November 2020.
