Absentee landords now need planning permission to turn houses in Noel Park into HMOs

I received the following email from Haringey council that might be of interest:

I suppose time will tell what impact, if any this will have on our community.


Dear Consultee,

Town and Country Planning (General Permitted Development) Order 1995
Town and Country Planning (General Permitted Development) (Amendment) (England) Order 2010
Notice pursuant to Article 5(1) of the making of an Article 4 Direction

London Borough of Haringey made an Article 4 (1) Direction on 30th November 2012, under Article 4(1) of the Town and Country Planning (General Permitted Development) Order 1995, as amended. The Direction relates to development comprising change of use from a use falling within Class C3 (dwelling houses) of the Town and Country Planning (Use Classes) Order 1987 (as amended) to a use falling within Class C4 (houses in multiple occupation) of that Order, and removes permitted development rights for this type of development from the date when the Direction comes into force. Planning permission will therefore be required for change of use from Class C3 to Class C4 once the Article 4 Direction is in force. 
The Article 4 Direction applies to the following wards: 

  • Seven Sisters;
  • Tottenham Green;
  • Tottenham Hale;
  • West Green;
  • Bruce Grove; 
  • White Hart Lane;
  • Northumberland Park;
  • Noel Park;
  • Woodside;
  • Bounds Green;
  • Harringay; and
  • St Ann’s.

A copy of the Direction, including a map defining the area covered, can be viewed at River Park House, 225 High Road, Wood Green N22 8HQ ; or can be viewed on the Council’s website at www.haringey.gov.uk/policy_and_projects 
Representations may be made concerning the Article 4 Direction between 30th November 2012 and 11th January 2013. If you wish to make representations you may do so by email to ldf@haringey.gov.uk or by post to Planning Policy Team, Level 6 River Park House, 225 High Road, Wood Green N22 8HQ. Any representations must be made by 5pm on Friday 11th January 2013. 
The Article 4 Direction will come into force, subject to confirmation by the Council, on 30th November 2013.
Yours sincerely,
Ciara Whelehan
