“Part 1 of the GPDO – Appeal Decision Summaries” – 2 additional appeal decisions (total = 332) …

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:

July 2012 - Code a00332:

  • Class A does allow an extension with a roof that would join onto the roof of the main house. (*)
  • This appeal decision provides an example of where it was concluded that a Class A extension with a roof that would join onto the roof of the main house should also be assessed against Class C (without applying the 15cm projection limit of C.1(b)) and not Class B. (*)
  • This appeal decision provides an example of the types of factors that should be taken into consideration when determining which elevation is “the principal elevation”.
  • The determination of which elevation is “the principal elevation of the original dwellinghouse” should be based on the property as it existed on 01/07/1948 or, if built after that date, as so built. (*)
  • For the purposes of the 01/10/2008-14/04/2015 version of A.1(e) (i.e. A.1(d)), where the principal elevation does not front a highway, an extension under Class A can extend beyond a wall that forms the principal elevation.
  • “The principal elevation” of a property is not necessarily the same as the “front” of the property.

July 2012 - Code a00331 (split decision):
