“Part 3 Class O of the GPDO – Appeal Decisions” – 7 additional appeal decisions (total = 67) …

The Part 3 Class O of the GPDO - Appeal Decisions document has been updated to include 7 additional appeal decisions relating to office-to-residential conversions, for which the conclusions are as follows:

December 2014 - Code P3CO-067 (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 considering the “transport and highways impacts of the development”, assessed vehicle parking and concluded that this would be unacceptable.
    [Quote: “If the development were to go ahead it would thereby cause parking stress in an area where capacity is already taken up on a daily basis. The consequences would be increased vehicular movements from drivers looking for parking spaces. This would have an attendant increase in congestion which would impact on the free flow of traffic and affect highway safety.”].

December 2014 - Code P3CO-066 (appeal dismissed):

  • This appeal decision was assessed against the issues specified by paragraph O.2 as follows:
    - “transport and highways impacts” = acceptable (minimal assessment).
    - “contamination risks” = acceptable (minimal assessment).
    - “flooding risks” = acceptable (minimal assessment).
  • This appeal decision provides an example of where it was concluded that the building was not used as B1(a) on 29/05/2013 or (if not in use on that date) when it was last in use. [Note: In other words, the proposed development would not comply with O.1(b)].
