WIGAN BOROUGH COUNCIL The Town and Country Planning

NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN by Wigan Borough Council ("the Council"), being the appropriate local planning authority, that on 16th July 2019 it made an Article 4(1) Direction under Article 4(1) of the Order.
The Direction relates to development comprising change of use from a use falling within Class C3 (dwellinghouses) of the Schedule to the Town and Country Planning (Use Classes) Order 1987 (as amended) to a use falling within Class C4 (houses in multiple occupation) of that Order being development comprised within Class L of Part 3 of Schedule 2 to the Order and not being development comprised within any other Class.
