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

July 2014 - Code e2014-012 (ground (c) dismissed):

  • This appeal decision provides an example of where it was concluded that decking should be assessed against Class E (i.e. rather than Class A). (*)
  • The height of a structure should be measured from the highest part of the adjacent ground level (i.e. rather than from each part of the adjacent ground level). (*)
  • When measuring the height of a structure, “ground level” means natural ground level.
  • When measuring the height of a structure, “ground level” means the ground level as it existed on 01/07/1948 or immediately after the property was built (whichever is later). [Note: In other words, “ground level” means “original” ground level]. (*)
  • This appeal decision provides an example of where it was concluded that a structure is not “immediately adjacent” to a particular piece of ground.

July 2014 - Code a00486 (appeal allowed):
