“Part 1 of the GPDO – Appeal Decision Summaries” – 3 additional appeal decisions (total = 361) …

The Part 1 of the GPDO - GENERAL Appeal Decisions document has been updated to include 3 additional appeal decisions relating to householder permitted development legislation, for which the conclusions are as follows:

November 2012 - Code a00361 (appeal dismissed):

  • Where a proposed extension would be attached to an existing 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]. (*)
  • Furthermore, the above conclusion still applies even if the existing extension was granted planning permission by the LPA (i.e. rather than erected under government permitted development rights). (*)
  • This appeal decision provides an example of where it was concluded that significant weight should be attached to the advice within the DCLG “Permitted development rights for householders - Technical Guidance” document. (*)

November 2012 - Code a00360 (appeal dismissed):
