“Part 1 of the GPDO – GENERAL Appeal Decisions” – 5 additional appeal decisions (total = 838) …

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, for which the conclusions are as follows:

August 2016 - Code a00732 (appeal dismissed):

  • For an application under section 192 (proposed), the works should be assessed against the version of the GPDO that was in force at the time of the application. (*)
  • For example, for an application under section 192 (proposed), if a previous version of the GPDO was in force at the time of the application, but the GPDO is amended by the date the application is determined, then the works should be assessed against the previous version of the GPDO. (*)
    [Conclusion: The time of the application was pre-15/04/2015 and therefore the works should be assessed against the pre-15/04/2015 version of the GPDO].
  • For example, for an application under section 192 (proposed), if the works had not been granted planning permission by the LPA at the time of the application, but the works have been granted planning permission by the LPA by the date the application is determined, then the works should be assessed on the basis that the works have not been granted planning permission by the LPA. (*)
  • This appeal decision provides an example of where it was concluded that, when measuring the height of a structure, “ground level” is the level that existed before the ground was raised or lowered.
    [Note: Not clear when ground was raised].

August 2016 - Code a00731 (appeal dismissed):

  • Where there’s an existing (non-original) extension with a roof that joins onto the roof of the main house, then this existing extension does reduce the volume (i.e. “cubic content”) that remains under B.1(d) for further extensions.

August 2016 - Code a00730 (appeal allowed):
