March 2014 - Code e2014-003 (ground (c) dismissed):

  • This appeal decision provides an example of where it was concluded that a particular roof extension would not constitute a “hip-to-gable enlargement” for the purposes of B.2(b).
  • For the purposes of the 01/10/2008-05/04/2014 version of B.2(b), the 20cm set back should be measured from the closest point of the eaves. (*)
  • This appeal decision provides an example of where an Inspector specifically disagrees with the advice within the DCLG “Permitted development rights for householders - Technical Guidance” document.
