Article 4 Direction for Kegworth

ARTICLE 4 DIRECTION FOR KEGWORTH - A MESSAGE FROM NORTH WEST LEICESTERSHIRE DISTRICT COUNCIL:

We are writing further to representations received to the 6 week period of public consultation in respect of the Article 4 Direction to the village of Kegworth, to withdraw permitted development rights for the change of use from dwellings houses (Use Class C3) to small Houses in Multiple Occupation (Use Class C4).

As you may recall, we undertook a consultation earlier this year to publicise the Article 4 Direction and to seek comments on the proposal. This took place between Monday 17th February and Monday 30th March 2020. Due to an administrative error, it is necessary to undertake a further 6 week consultation period. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause but it is considered essential to the process of making the Article 4 Direction, that this matter is addressed at this stage.

However, please be assured that if the Council decides to confirm the Article 4 Direction once it has considered all of the consultation responses, then the Article 4 Direction would still take effect on Friday 5 February 2021. It is only after that date that planning permission will be required for the change of use from dwelling houses (Use Class C3) to small HMO's (Use Class C4).

I can also confirm that any representations that have already been made will remain relevant and valid unless the Council is advised to the contrary.

The Councils website (https://www.nwleics.gov.uk/pages/kegwortharticle4) will also be updated accordingly and revised public notices will be displayed throughout Kegworth.Public ConsultationThe further 6 week period to publicise the Article 4 Direction and to seek comments on the proposal will take place between Monday 4th May 2020 and Monday 15th June 2020.
