Q4 Do you think tighter planning controls (known as an Article 4 direction*) would help to address some of the issues identified in question 3 and therefore help to improve the character and appearance of the All Saints Sedgley Conservation Area? (These controls would not prevent development but would require that planning permission is obtained first at no charge to the applicant)
i
Q5 The map shows some additional areas outside of the current Conservation Area boundary that are also considered to be of architectural or historic significance. Do you support the proposal to increase the conservation area boundary to include these additional areas?
k
Q6

* The draft appraisal has identified that there are residential parts of the Conservation Area that could be better preserved and enhanced if the local planning authority was to withdraw certain permitted development rights. Article 4 directions are one of the tools available to a local planning authority, their purpose is to restrict the changes owners can make to the outside of their property without first obtaining planning permission. An Article 4 direction does not prevent development but simply requires that planning permission is first obtained; there is no fee payable for a planning application which is required solely as a consequence of the Article 4 direction. An Article 4 direction has been successfully employed in the Love Lane and Mushroom Green Conservation Areas.
