The Part 1 of the GPDO - GENERAL Appeal Decisions document has been updated to include 2 additional appeal decisions relating to householder permitted development legislation, for which the conclusions are as follows:

April 2012 - Code a00312 (appeal dismissed):

  • Where it’s proposed to erect a two-storey rear extension, the restrictions of A.1(h) would apply to both storeys. (*)
  • For example, it is not possible to erect (as a single operation) a two-storey rear extension that has a ground floor that’s closer than 7m to the rear boundary and a first floor that’s not closer than 7m to the rear boundary. (*)
  • Where a proposed extension would be attached to another proposed extension, then the phrase “the enlarged part of the dwellinghouse” applies to the combined structure. [Note: In other words, the combined structure should be assessed against those limitations and conditions of Class A that apply to the enlarged part of the dwellinghouse].
  • Where a proposed extension would replace an original projection, then the phrase “the enlarged part of the dwellinghouse” does apply to the space that was previously occupied by the original projection. (*)

April 2012 - Code a00311 (appeal dismissed):
