What types of historic architectural features do Article 4(1) Directions aim to protect?

The first aim of an Article 4 Direction is to protect those architectural features which could ordinarily be altered or removed without the need for Planning Permission. Of these features, windows and doors are the most vulnerable to such change. Boundary walls/fences/railings/gates, rainwater goods, roof materials, chimneys and other types of joinery and ironwork (such as bargeboards, finials and brackets) are also at significant risk.

 

What will be expected of new development/alterations?

The second aim of an Article 4 Direction is to seek the enhancement of the affected area, by restricting unsympathetic changes to buildings (such as the introduction of PVC-u windows) and encouraging the use of traditional architectural features and materials.
