“Part 1 of the GPDO – GENERAL Appeal Decisions” – 5 additional appeal decisions (total = 1,073) …

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 2018 - Code a00967 (appeal dismissed):

  • For the purposes of the post-06/04/2014 version(s) of Part 1 of the GPDO, where a property has an original rear projection with a flat roof, which is lower than the main rear roof, then an “L”-shaped roof extension (or similar) that extends from the main rear roof onto the flat roof of the original rear projection is not permitted development. [Note: The roof extension, for all of its (rearmost) width, extends across the original rear eaves]. (*)
    [Conclusion: The works are contrary to B.2(b)(ii), noting that the roof extension does not constitute “an enlargement which joins the original roof to the roof of a rear or side extension”].
  • This appeal decision provides an example of where it was concluded that a particular roof extension does not constitute “an enlargement which joins the original roof to the roof of a rear or side extension” for the purposes of B.2(b). (*)
    [Note: The proposed rear dormer would join the main rear roof onto the flat roof of the original two-storey rear projection].
  • In the second of the above diagrams, (at least) part of “Roof Extension D” “extends beyond” the outside face of “Wall 1” (i.e. for the purposes of B.2(b)(ii)). [Note: The diagrams are viewable within the “Extend beyond” topic of this document].
    [Conclusion: The roof extension does not comply with B.2(b)(ii) for the above reason].

August 2018 - Code a00966 (appeal dismissed):

  • This appeal decision provides an example of the types of factors that should be taken into consideration when determining which elevation is “the principal elevation”.
  • “The principal elevation” is not necessarily the elevation that contains the main entrance door.
  • E.1(c) not only prevents an outbuilding from being directly in front of the principal elevation, but also prevents an outbuilding from being in front of the imaginary line of the principal elevation when extended to either side.
