  • This appeal decision provides an example of where it was concluded that a particular elevation does not “front” a highway, noting that the elevation and the highway are separated either by a significant distance or by land in different ownership or use.
  • If an applicant does not provide information as to whether a proposed development would comply with the conditions of a Class, then an LDC should be issued. (*)
  • For example, if the applicant does not specify whether the new upper-floor side windows would be obscure-glazed and non-opening, then an LDC should be issued. (*)
