Action Taken Under Delegated Authority (Significant Operation Decision): Proposed Article 4 Directions for Main Employment Areas

On 30 June 2021, the Cabinet of Crawley Borough Council approved the making of non-immediate Directions under Article 4(1) of the Town and Country (General Permitted Development) Order 2015 (as amended).  Detail of this decision is provided in Report PES/387.


Having considered all representations received during the consultation period, the Head of Economy and Planning in liaison with the Cabinet Member for Planning and Economic Development, is of the view that the Article 4 Directions are justified by robust evidence and are required to ensure there is no adverse impact on the economic role and function of the identified main employment areas or the wider economic function of Crawley.  Therefore, on 22 July 2022, following a 12-month notification period and having considered all representations made during consultation, the Head of Economy and Planning in consultation with the Cabinet Member for Planning and Economic Development, approved that the Article 4 Directions will come into force on 1 August 2022 in the following main employment areas:

i.                Manor Royal

ii.              Maidenbower Business Park

iii.             Lowfield Heath

iv.             Three Bridges Corridor

v.              Tilgate Forest Business Centre


From the date they come into force, the Article 4 Directions remove the Class MA permitted development right for Commercial, Business & Service (E) to residential (C3).


Further information is available on the Council’s website.  Queries in relation to this decision can be directed to Anthony Masson, Senior Planning Officer.
