“Part 3 Class O of the GPDO – Appeal Decision Summaries” – 5 additional appeal decisions (total = 8) …

The Part 3 Class O of the GPDO - Appeal Decisions document has been updated to include 5 additional appeal decisions relating to office-to-residential conversions, for which the conclusions are as follows:

May 2014 - Code P3CO-008 (appeal dismissed):

  • This appeal decision was assessed against the issues specified by paragraph O.2 as follows:
    - “transport and highways impacts” = unacceptable (detailed assessment).
    - “contamination risks” = no assessment.
    - “flooding risks” = no assessment.
  • This appeal decision provides an example of where the Inspector, when assessing the impact of the proposed development, concluded that it is appropriate to take into account the additional impact that would result from the implementation of an extant planning permission on the same site.
  • This appeal decision provides an example of where the Inspector, when considering the “transport and highways impacts of the development”, assessed vehicle parking and concluded that this would be unacceptable.
    [Quote: “This would be to the detriment of the safety and convenience of road users in the area”].
  • When assessing an application for prior approval, the development plan (e.g. the LPA’s Local Plan, etc) is a material consideration. (*)
    [Note: This appeal decision implies (rather than states) this conclusion].
    [Quote: “This would be to the detriment of the safety and convenience of road users in the area and contrary to the objectives of both DMP Policy DM TP 8 and the National Planning Policy Framework.”].
