“Part 3 Class Q of the GPDO – Appeal Decisions” – Update relating to section 55(2)(a) of the TCPA 1990 …

The Part 3 Class Q of the GPDO – Appeal Decisions document covers 300 appeal decisions relating to Part 3 Class Q of the GPDO (i.e. agricultural-to-residential conversions). As stated in this previous post, this document is no longer regularly updated, because it's considered unlikely that significantly more could be learnt about Part 3 Class Q that hasn't already been learnt from these 300 appeals.

  • As can be seen from the above quotes, a number of appeal decisions within the first conclusion contradict a number of appeal decisions within the second conclusion.
