Article 4 directions


Some areas of Harlow are covered by Article 4 directions. If your property is in one of these areas, you’ll need planning permission for works that would normally be covered by permitted development rights.

There are Article 4 directions in Harlow affecting:

  • Old Harlow
  • Morley Grove 
  • Templefields
  • Pinnacles
  • Burnt Mill and Station Approach
  • Town Centre

We are currently consulting on a further Article 4 direction, which is a town-wide direction affecting the conversion of properties from single family dwellings to houses in multiple occupation. You can read more about this proposed Article 4 on our consultation page
