** Current Consultation **
The Council is consulting on the documents below. Comments concerning the Article 4 Direction should be made in writing to the Local Plan Team, Magdalen House, 30 Trinity Road, Bootle L20 3NJ or firstname.lastname@example.org by the end of Friday 13th April 2018.
On 20th September 2017 the Council issued a ‘non-immediate’ Article 4 direction for HMOs in parts of Bootle, Litherland, Seaforth, Waterloo and Southport. There will be a 1 year period before this direction is implemented. The direction removes permitted development rights for the change of use from a use falling within Class C3 (dwellinghouse) to a use falling within Class C4 (Houses of Multiple Occupation).
A copy of the Direction, a map defining the areas covered and the supporting evidence for the making of the article 4 direction can be viewed below.
No comments were received in an earlier formal notification and consultation (September to December 2017); however there is now another opportunity to comment, as above.
The Article 4 Direction, will come into force, subject to confirmation by the Council, on Thursday 20th September 2018.
