“Part 1 of the GPDO – Appeal Decision Summaries” – 5 additional appeal decisions (total = 482) …

The Part 1 of the GPDO - GENERAL Appeal Decisions document has been updated to include 5 additional appeal decisions relating to householder permitted development legislation (2 "LDC Appeals" and 3 "Enforcement Appeals"), for which the conclusions are as follows:

October 2013 - Code e2013-031 (ground (c) dismissed):

  • A new house that’s under construction does not benefit from Part 1 of the GPDO.
  • Permitted development rights do not apply to an unlawful building.

October 2013 - Code a00415 (appeal 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. (*)

October 2013 - Code e2013-030 (ground (c) dismissed):
