The following steps were involved in the Article 4 Direction.
Step 1 – CC ‘made’ the A4D.
Step 2 – the making of the A4D was advertised through a newspaper advert and by display of notices throughout the area affected by the A4D for a period of not less than six weeks.
The notice —
- Described the A4D and the area it relates to
- Said where a copy of the A4D could be inspected
- Gave a period of at least 21 days, stating the date on which that period began, for representations to be made to the Local Planning Authority and
- Gave the date on which the A4D will come into force, which must be at least 28 days but no longer than 2 years after the date given above.
Step 3 – A copy of the A4D and the notice was be sent to the Secretary of State on the same day that notice of the A4D was first published.
Step 4 – The local planning authority (Cornwall Council) took into account any representations received and decided to confirm the Direction on 16th June 2016.
Step 5 – After the Direction was confirmed the local planning authority gave notice of the confirmation and the date on which the Direction will come into force; and sent a copy of the Direction as confirmed to the Secretary of State.
The Article 4 Direction was made and advertised in May 2016. It was confirmed on 16th June 2016, and will come into full effect on 16 June 2017.
