Domestic properties have permitted development rights allowing
owners to carry out a range of development works without planning
permission. Such works can have a harmful effect on the character
or appearance of a conservation area leading to the erosion of
their special interest. The Council has already removed many of
these rights by serving an Article 4 Direction.
This report recommends that permitted development rights to install domestic micro generation equipment including solar PV or solar thermal equipment and wind turbines be withdrawn from domestic properties (houses and flats) within the Lakes Conservation Area as a pilot.
It further recommends that future decisions to serve Article 4 Directions to remove any permitted development rights across the borough be decided by Planning Committee
