“GPDO Part 1 (All Classes) – LDC Appeal Decisions” – 1 additional appeal decision (total = 373) …

The "GPDO Part 1 (All Classes) - LDC Appeal Decisions" document has been updated to include 1 additional appeal decision relating to householder permitted development legislation, for which the conclusions are as follows:

December 2012 - Code a00373 (appeal dismissed):

  • For a property with a rectangular footprint, the combination of A.1(j) and A.1(f)/A.1(g)/A.1(h) would not allow an “L”-shaped extension that covers the original side wall and then wraps-around the corner to cover the original rear wall. This is because the restriction of A.1(j) against having “a width greater than half the width of the original dwellinghouse” would apply to the entire extension (i.e. not only to that part of the extension that extends beyond the original side wall). (*)
  • Where part of an extension would extend beyond an original side wall, the restrictions of A.1(j) would apply to the entire extension (i.e. not only to that part of the extension that extends beyond the original side wall). (*)
  • For example, where part of an extension would extend beyond an original side wall, the overall width of the (entire) extension can not be “greater than half the width of the original dwellinghouse”, even if the part of the extension that extends beyond the original side wall would not do so by more than half the width of the house. (*)
  • 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. (*)
