On the 3rd November 2016, Islington Council made three Article 4 Directions covering different parts of the borough to withdraw the Permitted Development right of changing the use of a property in light industrial use (Use Class B1c) to a dwellinghouse (Use Class C3).
The Directions, which require confirmation from the Council’s executive, will come into force on the 3rd November 2017 should they be approved. The Directions relate to the Vale Royal/ Brewery Road Locally Significant Industrial Site, the Central Activities Zone within Islington and other B1c locations within the borough. Islington Council are currently accepting comments on the proposed Article 4 Directions until the 16th December 2016.
