In order to preserve the character or appearance of conservation areas, the Council is able to remove various dwellinghouse permitted development rights under Article 4(2) of the Town and Country Planning (General Permitted Development Order) 1995 (GPDO).
It has become apparent that the existing protections in place to prevent boundary wall removals (primarily to allow parking) are not sufficient in order to effectively manage change within the two Llandaff conservation areas.
In order to address this, additional Article 4(2) Directions are proposed to remove permitted development rights for the partial demolition of any means of enclosure within the Llandaff and Cardiff Road Conservation Areas (Class B of Part 31 of Schedule 2 of the GPDO). Alterations will then require planning permission (no fee is payable for these applications).
