It is much easier to say that councils have ways to deal with the 14-day rule by use of Article 4 directions than to effectively use.

So Kirkless MBC licensing and markets service head Stuart Whitaker writes in Market Trader (p24).

'Article 4 of the General Permitted Development Order 1995 enables local authorities to withdraw any permitted development rights, subject to a rather lengthy procedure, and confirmation by the secretary of state. Once a direction is confirmed, if it is confirmed, this would mean that express consent would need to be applied for before the use of land for such a purpose was authorised,' he explains.

'Many councils have already had a rather expensive experience in respect of Article 4 directions. I think that if there was any likelihood that compensation was a consequence of making such an order councils would be very reluctant to proceed'.
