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:

March 2019 - Code a01045 (appeal dismissed):

  • Where a property has 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. (*)
  • Where a property has an existing (non-original) extension with a roof that does not join 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.
    [Note: The roof of the existing single storey side extension, and the roof of the existing porch, is at a lower level than the main roof of the two-storey house].

March 2019 - Code a01044 (1 x appeal dismissed, 1 x appeal allowed):

  • Only one elevation can constitute “the principal elevation”. (*)
  • 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.
