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:

April 2020 - Code a01155 (appeal dismissed):

  • Only one elevation can constitute “the principal elevation”. (*)
  • More than one wall facing the same direction can form “the principal elevation” (in the case where the elevation is staggered horizontally). (*)
  • This appeal decision provides an example of where it was concluded that a wall that’s significantly set back from a forward projection of the property does form part of “the principal elevation”.
    [Note: The wall is set back by approx 5.5m].
  • In the second of the above diagrams, “Extension D” is subject to the “extend beyond” type restrictions in relation to “Wall 2”. [Note: The diagrams are viewable within the “Extend beyond” topic of this document].
    [Note: This appeal decision relates to “the principal elevation”].

April 2020 - Code a01154 (appeal allowed):

  • Class A does allow an extension with a roof that joins onto the roof of the main house. (*)
  • This appeal decision provides an example of where it was concluded that a Class A extension with a roof that joins onto the roof of the main house should also be assessed against Class C (without applying the 15cm projection limit of C.1(b)) and not Class B. (*)
    [Note: The roof of the extension does not contain a habitable room].
