New restrictions on permitted development, known as Article 4 Directions, have been made for Avonmouth Village and parts of North, East and South Bristol.  

If the new Article 4 Directions are confirmed, you’ll need planning permission for a change of use from a dwelling house (Use Class C3) to a small house in multiple occupation (Use Class C4) in these areas from when they take effect.

Formal notice of the newly made Article 4 Directions was given on 3 July 2019.
