Conservation Area No.6 - Bisley

Bisley was first designated as a conservation area in November 1975. The boundary was amended in October 1997 during its first review. A second review was carried out in 2006-7 and an updated Conservation Area Statement was adopted in June 2007 as Supplementary Planning Advice (SPA).

The Conservation Area Statement contains information about the character and special significance of the conservation area, as well as proposals for its conservation and enhancement. The document is used to guide the interpretation and application of Development Plan policies, including Local Plan Policy ES10.

Bisley CAS (June 2007)

Article 4 (2) Direction

Although the Permitted Development Rights of houses (and buildings other than shops and flats) are restricted within a Conservation Area, the additional controls brought about by designation of the Conservation Area cannot sufficiently prevent many changes to these buildings. If unchecked, a successive number of such changes could damage the character of the Conservation Area.

For this reason, the Local Authority made an Article 4 (2) Direction on 11th February 1998. Article 4 Directions allow the Local Planning Authority to apply controls to works of alteration to dwelling houses, which were previously allowed through Permitted Development Rights. As a consequence of an Article 4 Direction, certain works to specified properties require an application for Planning Permission. For such applications there will be no planning fee payable.

In the case of an Article 4 (2) direction, the controls only apply in circumstances where the proposed works are on elevations which front a highway or public open space.

The following buildings are covered by the Direction. These are unlisted buildings, in use as dwelling houses, and as such they would normally have greater permitted development rights than other buildings in the Conservation Area.
