“Part 1 of the GPDO – Appeal Decision Summaries” – 4 additional appeal decisions (total = 388) …

The Part 1 of the GPDO - GENERAL Appeal Decisions document has been updated to include 4 additional appeal decisions relating to householder permitted development legislation (0 "LDC Appeals" and 4 "Enforcement Appeals") for which the conclusions are as follows:

January 2013 - Code e2013-003 (ground (c) dismissed):

  • This appeal decision provides an example of where it was concluded that the phrase “the enlarged part of the dwellinghouse” does apply to a particular structure. [Note: In other words, the structure should be assessed against those limitations and conditions of Class A that apply to the enlarged part of the dwellinghouse].
  • The term “eaves” does apply to the edge of a projecting canopy. (*)
  • This appeal decision provides an example of where it was concluded that corrugated plastic sheeting (on the side wall of a projecting canopy) would not be “of a similar appearance” to traditional materials (e.g. bricks and render) (on the main house).

May 2012 - Code e2012-008 (ground (c) dismissed):

  • Where an existing outbuilding would be enlarged, then the whole of the resulting structure (i.e. not only the additional part) should be assessed against E.1(e). [Note: In other words, the phrase “the building, enclosure or container” applies to the whole of the resulting structure]. (*)
  • For example, where an existing outbuilding is within 2m of a boundary and has height greater than 2.5m, then a proposed extension to this outbuilding would not comply with E.1(e) even if the proposed extension would not (in itself) be within 2m of a boundary or would not (in itself) have height greater than 2.5m. (*)

May 2012 - Code e2012-007 (ground (c) dismissed):
