The “Part 1 of the GPDO – Visual Guide” document has been replaced with a newer version …

The Part 1 of the GPDO - Visual Guide document on this website has been replaced with a newer version.  The main improvements are as follows:

  • The newer version includes higher quality illustrations.
  • The newer version includes a quick reference sheet for the 2013 amendments to Class A (i.e. larger single storey rear extensions).
  • The newer version includes a quick reference sheet titled "What to check BEFORE giving advice on householder permitted development legislation".

The newer version is also significantly shorter than the previous version, as the aim is to provide local authorities, planning consultants, and developers with a series of "quick reference" sheets that they can use on an everyday basis.  Below is an example screenshot from the newer version:

This is an example screenshot for the above document, which provides a visual guide to householder permitted development legislation.
