Article 4 Direction and planning permission for Houses in Multiple Occupation
Manchester City Council made an Article 4 Direction on the 7 October 2010 and confirmed this on 17 January 2011. The Direction came into force on 8 October 2011 and permitted development rights for change of use from a Class C3 dwellinghouse to a Class C4 house in multiple occupation have been removed from this date. This means that planning permission is required for this type of development.
