Copy of Report to: Planning committee - 28 October 1998

CITY OF PORTSMOUTH

REPORT TO: PLANNING COMMITTEE – 28 OCTOBER 1998

REPORT BY: CITY PLANNING OFFICER

PREPARED BY: BOB COLLEY

CONFIRMATION OF ARTICLE 4(2) DIRECTION :

CASTLE ROAD CONSERVATION AREA ( WESTERN PART )

Purpose

To consider confirmation of the Article 4(2) Direction – Castle Road – western part shown on the attached plan.

Recommended

It is recommended that the City Council confirm the Article 4(2) Direction

Background

The Article 4(2) Direction is to control the inappropriate replacement of windows, doors, and roof coverings on the front elevation of each property, and the demolition of chimney stacks and front boundary walls/railings/gates. The previous informal public consultation exercise resulted in 18 comments slips being returned in favour of the proposal, and 1 opposing the proposal.

The Direction came into effect on 2 September 1998, and notice of the direction was served upon the affected properties and advertised in The News. Copies of the Direction were available at The Civic Offices and at Southsea Library, Elm Grove.

Residents were invited to comment in writing before 2 October. Two letters of support and one objection have been received. The proposed Direction attracted favourable comment in an article in The News dated 25 July.

One letter of support from a resident comments that the proposal was not a moment too soon, and hopes that it will be vigorously enforced. The second letter from the Chair of the Castle Road Association welcomes the Direction, also regrets that it was not made sooner, and expresses concern about alterations to business properties. Businesses and flats cannot be included in the Direction, but require planning permission for material changes to their external appearance.

The letter of objection is from the owner of 17 Kent Road who has installed UPVC casement windows on the 2nd and 3rd floors of the front elevation, and intended to install similar windows in the future on the ground and 1st floors. He comments that he did not receive the initial consultation leaflet, so he did not know of the Direction until the notice was served. He informs us that he is under contract to the UPVC window contractor to supply further windows.

The owner was advised that any future work would require planning permission, and that he should consider submitting an application. It was also suggested that he contact the window company to find out if they could supply sash style windows

I am assured that the leaflet was delivered to all affected properties by the Direction including No 17. This house adjoins a terrace of listed buildings, and the proposed work is very much that which the direction was intended to control. The windows which have already been fitted are at high level, and are perhaps less obtrusive for that reason. The proposed future windows would be at first floor bay and ground floor level so that they would be much more visible.

The Direction can either be confirmed or allowed to lapse after six months. The Direction has received a generally favourable reaction from residents, and as such it is recommended that the Article 4(2) Direction be confirmed.

Dear Mr Hibberd

ARTICLE 4(2) DIRECTION -17 KENT ROAD, SOUTHSEA

Thank you for your letter and E mail which I have treated as an objection to the Article 4(2) Direction.

I am preparing a report for committee concerning the confirmation of the Direction, and I will report your letter to them. I am currently intending to report to the next meeting of the Planning Committee on 28th October.

The Town and Country Planning (General Permitted Development) Order 1995 sets out the extent of ‘permitted development’, and of restrictions on the extent of permitted development such as Article 4(2)Directions.

I note your comments about your contractural situation with the window manufacturer, and it may be worth exploring with them whether they can supply windows that would match the existing windows.

I enclose application forms for planning permission with explanatory notes. There is no fee for a planning application where permission is required as a consequence of an Article 4(2) Direction.

Yours sincerely

Bob Colley

1st October 1998

Dear Bob Colley,

Thank you for your letter, ref.: CON 12/RAC c.c.DA21058, after our meeting on the 16th September.

As I explained at our meeting, I had not received the leaflet which was to, ‘assess public support for the proposed Direction and help warn public of a POSSIBLE Direction’.

As I also explained at our meeting, I started gathering quotes for replacement windows at the beginning of this year (1998) – January, February, and in March found a supplier and fitter which I was happy to proceed with in entering a contract to replace my old wooden windows with uPVC windows.

Now, the schedule for this contract was to replace 9 out of the 14 windows in July and then the remaining 5 windows three months later in October. As you have seen at our meeting the initial 9 windows are in place and the other 5 are due to be fitted very soon.

On the 3rd September you sent me a letter explaining that from 2nd September 1998 an Article 4(2) Direction had been placed on my property with immediate affect.

An extract from this Article 4(2) :-

‘In practical terms means that from 2nd September 1998 if you wish to :- * replace windows or doors on the front elevation of your property;

an application for planning permission must be made to the City Council Planning Service. Please note that this does not affect any alterations that have already taken place nor does it affect repairs to the property.’

Now this letter, ref.: RAC/A4(2)CAl2(west), does not mention anything about work already started, i.e. the contract that I have entered into in good faith with the uPVC windows supplier and fitter in March which is in progress.

In addition to this your letter, ref: CON 12/RAC c.c.DA21058, states, would not recommend continuing without permission, because such work would be unauthorised and could result in enforcement being take.’

As such, I an now in a position that I entered in good faith, and are half way through a contract, to replace my windows with uPVC and if I proceed with this contract could be in breach of this Article 4(2) or if by not proceeding be in possible breach of contract with the uPVC supplier and fitter.

I must therefore object to this Article 4(2) on two grounds:-

Firstly, that I have been given NO prior warning or advance notification of this Article 4(2) being implemented on my property. In actual fact I was not notified of this Article 4(2) as until the day after it was implemented.

Secondly, that it would appear that I am in a stale mate position between the Article 4(2) and the contract I have with the uPVC window suppliers and fitters.

I am at present seeking advice from several sources on this matter and if I may trouble you for details of were and in what sections I could find more information on the regulation on issuing such an Article 4(2) I would be very grateful, as this might mean the minimal fuss to all concerned.

Finally, may I also ask that you supply me with details on how I should apply for planning permission for the continued replacement of the remaining front two windows.

I look forward to your response.

Yours Sincerely

Dear Mr Hibberd

ARTICLE 4(2) DIRECTION -17 KENT ROAD, SOUTHSEA

I refer to our meeting on 16th September.

As I said when we met I am assured by my colleague who delivered the leaflets that he delivered a copy to your property, and I very much regret that you did not receive it. The main purpose of the leaflet was to assess public support for the possible Direction, but it also helps warn the public of a possible Direction with the resulting changes in permitted development rights. I would remind you that the formal Notice gives residents until 2nd October to make representations to the City Council concerning the Direction.

The purpose of the Article 4(2) Direction is to try to maintain the overall appearance of this conservation area. The effect of the direction is to bring within planning control changes to external doors, and windows on the front elevation, alterations to roofs and chimneys which would otherwise be ‘permitted development’, so that a planning application would be necessary to carry out such work.

If replacement windows match the existing windows so that the glazing bars are in the same position, and the method of opening is the same i.e. vertical sliding sash then I do not consider that an application would be necessary. Whilst we would prefer traditional wooden sash windows, it is now possible to obtain PVCu windows which match the appearance of wooden windows. You may wish to find out if the company you are using could supply such windows

If you wish to install windows which differ in appearance and method of opening to the existing ground and first floor windows then a planning application would be necessary. Applicants can request permission to address the planning committee concerning their application. There is also a right of appeal to the Secretary of State against decisions by local planning authority.

I would not recommend continuing work without permission, because such work would be unauthorised and could result in enforcement action being taken.

Lastly I would remind you that we operate a Historic Building Grant scheme, and grant aid is available for repair work to historic buildings using traditional materials. Grant is normally 20% of the cost of work up to a £1000 maximum.

Yours sincerely

Dear Mr Cooper

ARTICLE 4(2) DIRECTION

CONSERVATION AREA 12 – CASTLE ROAD, SOUTHSEA

Thank you for your letter supporting the Article 4(2) Direction relating to the western part of the Castle Road conservation area.

The power to make Article 4(2) Directions to control ‘permitted development’ was introduced in the Town and Country Planning ( General Permitted Development) Order 1995 following a lot of concern about the harmful effects of permitted development on the character of conservation areas.

The Castle Road Direction is the fourth that we have made so far in the city, and we are looking at other areas including other parts of the Southsea.

Only single family dwellings can be included in Article 4(2) Directions because only they enjoy permitted development rights. Other properties require planning permission for any work which materially affects their appearance.

I share your concern about alterations to properties such as flats or shops which cannot be included in an Article 4(2) Direction, and consideration is being given to ways of addressing this problem.

Yours sincerely

Dear Sir,

This measure will not be a moment too soon if we are to preserve the interesting character of our street. I strongly support it, and hope it will be vigorously enforced.

Although this does not affect alterations already made, I wonder what happens when those who work who have already installed plastic doors and windows have to replace them, will they be required to revert to original designs and materials, or will they get away with replacing like with like?

With reference to your letter 2nd September, I write as not only a resident but chairman of the local resident association to advise you that we agree with any Direction that will help maintain the character of the area.

It is a shame that this Directive is so late in coming as there already is too much plastic and confusion between what private and business members can or can not do. Any directive that clarifies the position will be welcome

Dear owner/ occupier

ARTICLE 4(2) DIRECTION – CONSERVATION AREA 12 – CASTLE ROAD, SOUTHSEA

Following the public consultation exercise carried out earlier this year, the Planning Committee decided to progress with the Article 4(2) Direction for the western part of the Castle Road conservation area. The aim of the Direction is to help towards conserving the character that makes your area special.

The attached legal notice informs you that the Article 4(2) Direction has been placed on your property with immediate effect. In practical terms this means that from 2 September 1998 if you wish to:-

  • replace windows or doors on the front elevation of your property;
  • remove or alter the chimney stack;
  • replace the cladding on the roof of your property fronting the highway; or
  • alter the front boundary wall/ gate/ railings

an application for planning permission must be made to the City Council Planning Service. Please note that this Direction does not affect any alterations that have already taken place nor does it affect repairs to the property. If you are in any doubt, it is best to contact the Planning Service for advice.

The City Council has made funds available for grant aid towards certain works to your property for the reinstatement or repair of traditional features on your property, such as timber sash windows. Please contact us if you would like more information or an historic buildings grant application form.

There is now another opportunity to express your views. Please let us know whether or not you support this direction so that your views can be taken into account. Any letters should be sent to the city planning officer by 2 October 1998. I will then report any comments to the planning committee so that they can decide whether to confirm the direction.

If you have any queries, please contact do not hesitate to contact me.

Yours faithfully

Dear Mr Riley

ARTICLE 4(2) DIRECTION, CONSERVATION AREA NO 12, GREAT SOUTHSEA STREET | CASTLE ROAD

Thank you for your letter.

The Direction to which you refer is the result of a national change in the law relating to conservation areas. This change resulted from widely expressed concern that the overall effect of many minor changes to buildings such as new doors and windows was seriously harming the appearance of many conservation areas. An Article 4(2) Direction allows us to bring within planning control changes such as doors, windows, and roofs which currently do not require planning consent because they are ‘permitted development’. Government advice suggests that we should make such Directions selectively, and that we should be able to demonstrate public support before making them. The City Council has made such Directions in Campbell Road (39 – 83), Richmond Terrace / Netley Road, and we are shortly about to make one in the King Street area.

I have been carrying out an initial survey of buildings, and preparing a consultation leaflet to seek the views of residents about a Direction in the Great Southsea Street/Castle Road area. Piecemeal changes to the terrace on the east side of Great Southsea Street have concerned us for some time, and I share your concern about the recent door (which was also accompanied by a change to a bay window). At present however such changes do not require planning permission, but if we go ahead with an Article 4(2) Direction any similar changes in future will require permission which we will not be keen to grant.

I am now hoping to consult residents in your area about a Direction in the next few weeks (sooner than originally envisaged), and subject to public support I will ask the Planning Committee to approve a Direction.

I hope that we will be able to count on your support for this move, and that in future we will be able to control such changes.

Yours sincerely

Dear Mr Pike,

I read recently in the local newspaper of the new ‘directive’ requiring planning permission if a charge in appearance to a house is required.

This is not a moment too soon. It is a excellent initiative which gives, at long last, some real meaning to the previously hollow expression ‘conservation area’. Portsmouth City Council deserves the fullest support in making this work.

My one regret is that the scheme does not cover Great Southsea street, also a conservation area and earliest surviving street of houses in Southsea. The appearance of a fine row of well preserved period houses on the East side of the street has been ruined by one plastic door (white) which should never have been permitted. I would be very interested to know:

  1. Why Great Southsea street was not included in the scheme.
  2. If there is any possibility of

Dear Councillor Worley

WINDOWS AT 19 GREAT SOUTHSEA STREET, SOUTHSEA

I understand from Mick Sidwell that you are concerned about the new window which has been installed at 19 Great Southsea Street.

The first floor bay has had its wooden sash window replaced by a UPVC window with a top hung opening section. The ground floor has a modern wooden sash window, and the second floor has a UPVC window which has been in place for at least 10 months. As this is a single family dwelling, which is not a listed building, changes to windows within the existing openings are ‘permitted development’, so that unfortunately we cannot do anything about the new window.

I have been concerned about uncoordinated changes to this terrace for some time, but until recently there was little we could do to control minor changes (doors, windows, roofs) to unlisted buildings in conservation areas. However a recent change in the law allows councils to selectively make Article 4(2) Directions to control such alterations by removing some ‘permitted development’ rights. We have made Article 4(2) Directions in the Netley Road, and Campbell Road areas, and we are about to make one in the King Street conservation area. I have nearly completed initial survey work with a view to a possible Direction in the Castle Road area. I am planning to carry out initial public consultation with residents in the near future before reporting to the Planning Committee, and I will keep you informed of progress.

A Conservation Area Guidelines publication is also nearing completion for the Castle Road conservation area.

ARTICLE 4(2) DIRECTION :
CASTLE ROAD CONSERVATION AREA ( WESTERN PART )
RESULTS OF PUBLIC CONSULTATION EXERCISE

PURPOSE

A report on the results of a public consultation exercise with regard to a possible Article 4(2) Direction for certain properties within the western part of Conservation Area 12 (shown on the attached plan), and to consider serving notice of the Direction on the affected properties.

RECOMMENDED

That the City Council approve the service of Notice of the Direction upon the owners and occupiers affected. The proposed Article 4(2) Direction is to control the inappropriate replacement of :-

  • windows and doors on the front elevation
  • roof coverings
  • removal or alteration of chimney stacks/pots
  • removal or alteration of front boundary walls or railings

BACKGROUND

The character and appearance of a conservation area can be reduced through the inappropriate replacement of traditional features on historic buildings. Many alterations such as changing windows or roofs do not at present require planning permission. An Article 4(2) Direction will bring many of these alterations under planning control giving the Local Planning Authority more control over alterations and helping preserve the special character of the area.

The proposed Direction refers only to older residential properties with ‘permitted development rights’ . Modern houses have been excluded, as/have business properties and flats which already require planning permission for most work. Consideration will be given in the future to the possibility of a further direction covering the eastern part of this conservation area including St Edwards Road and Yarborough Road.

RECOMMENDED

That the City Council approve the service of Notice of the Direction upon the owners and occupiers affected. The proposed Article 4(2) Direction is to control the inappropriate replacement of :-

  • windows and doors on the front elevation
  • roof coverings
  • removal or alteration of chimney stacks/pots
  • removal or alteration of front boundary walls or railings

Comments: present laws not ideal but any more would restrict civil liberties

The next stage

Serve Notice – Takes effect immediately

Report to Committee any representations – decision to move forward or abandon proposal

Confirm Notice – after 28 days or within six months of service of Notice

CONCLUSION

The object of this informal public consultation exercise was to obtain the views of the local residents before consideration is given to serving a formal Direction. Residents will still have a formal right to object when the Order is made. The response rate for this consultation was 28 %, all but one supporting the proposal, and consequently I recommend that the Notice be served on the affected properties.

Dear Mr Forbes

6 ST EDWARDS ROAD, SOUTHSEA

I refer to our discussions concerning this house.

This house was included in an Article 4(2) Direction covering houses in the Castle Road/Great Southsea Street area which was confirmed on 28 October 1998, and it included alterations to roofs, boundary walls, doors and windows.

Generally planning permission would be necessary for any work except on a ‘like for like’ basis. Further and careful consideration has been given as to whether the Direction applies to this property and whether planning permission is required to change the windows. The reason for this is that the Town & Country Planning (General Permitted Development ) Order 1995 which sets out procedures for the making of Article 4(2) Directions refers to houses fronting a highway. No 6 St Edwards Road is partly behind Nos 4 & 8, and is some 25 metres from the Road.

The conclusion reached is that it is not considered that the Direction can apply to this property. In consequence planning permission is not required for the work in progress.

Yours sincerely,

Following the report of work to 6 St Edwards Road, I visited the site, and spoke to the developer. I told him that I considered the some of the work being carried out needed planning permission.

However before putting this in writing further consideration was given as to whether the Direction applies to this property and whether planning permission was in fact required.

Dear Mr Clark

RED LODGE 18 GARDEN LANE SOUTHSEA

Further to your letter dated 25 February 1999.

An Article 4(2) Direction was placed on the above property on 2 September 1998 and covers:

  • the replacement of windows and doors on the front elevation;
  • the removal/alteration of chimney stacks;
  • the replacement of the roof cladding on the roofslope fronting a highway; and
  • the alteration/demolition of front boundary walls/gates/railings.

The lych-gate is an integral and attractive part of the lane and the Direction has been put in place to protect such features in the conservation area. Planning permission would be required for the removal of the gate and the widening of the access. The removal of the lych-gate would not be considered to be acceptable as it is contrary to the aim of the Article 4(2) Direction and would not preserve or enhance the character or appearance of the conservation area

I cannot at this stage indicate whether the construction of a garage would require planning permission without further details of the proposed size and exact siting of the garage.

I enclose the relevant forms for your use. If you have any queries, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Yours sincerely,

Permission will be needed for minor changes to homes.

By Matthew Woolford
Political reporter

Businesses in a historic Portsmouth street have welcomed proposals to further protect the area’s architectural heritage.

Planners want to make it more difficult for people in the Castle Road area of Southsea to make alterations to the ap­pearance of their houses.

The move by Portsmouth City Council will mean resi­dents will have to get planning permission to alter windows, railings, roofs and chimneys.

Nick Hall, the owner of Sabre Sales, said he thought the proposed restriction was good news for the road on the whole.

The area already has con­servation status – limiting development which can take place – and councillors will dis­cuss the tightening of planning rules at a meeting on Wednes­day.

But at present the rules, al­ready tighter than other areas, cannot be used to ‘stop alter­ations to houses such as the in­stallation of plastic front doors which might be out of charac­ter with the area.

Flats, shops and pubs al­ready need to get permission to make such changes.

Chief planning officer Paul Newbold said it had proved to be an effective way of control­ling development in other areas such as Campbell Road.

He added it was considering applying the same rules to other parts of Southsea.

Chairman of the planning committee Councillor Tony McCarthy (Lab, Nelson) said: It is essential we do everything in our powers to ensure the his­torical value of the city’s heritage is not diluted.’

Peter Newbury-Thornton, technical director of the Castle Road-based website designers Need UK. was in favour of it.

He said: ‘It is quite a good idea. Certainly this road has a lot of character and history.’

The 27-year-old said most of the shops still had their origi­nal fronts but he felt it was in no way ‘twee’.
