  • The phrase “the highest part of the … roof” relates to the property as a whole (i.e. not only to the part of the property that’s being altered or enlarged). (*)
  • For example, where a property has a secondary roof that’s lower than the main roof, then a flue on this secondary roof can be more than 1m higher than the highest part of this secondary roof (i.e. so long as the flue is not more than 1m higher than the highest part of the main roof). (*)
