“Part 1 of the GPDO – GENERAL Appeal Decisions” – 6 additional appeal decisions (total = 1,495) …

The Part 1 of the GPDO - GENERAL Appeal Decisions document has been updated to include 6 additional appeal decisions relating to householder permitted development legislation, for which the conclusions are as follows:

February 2022 - Code a01389 (appeal dismissed):

  • Where part of an extension extends beyond an original side wall, then the restrictions of A.1(j) apply to the entire extension (i.e. not only to that part of the extension that extends beyond the original side wall). (*)
  • For example, where part of an extension extends beyond an original side wall, then the overall width of the (entire) extension can not be “greater than half the width of the original dwellinghouse”, even if the part of the extension that extends beyond the original side wall does not do so by more than half the width of the house. (*)
  • In the first of the above diagrams, “Extension A” is subject to the “extend beyond” type restrictions in relation to “Wall 1”. [Note: The diagrams are viewable within the “Extend beyond” topic of this document]. (*)
    [Note: This appeal decision relates to “a wall forming a side elevation”].
  • This appeal decision provides an example of where it was concluded that the following materials are not “of a similar appearance” to one-another:
    - composite cladding versus red-brown bricks.
    [Note: On the walls of a single storey rear extension versus on the walls of the main house (respectively)].

February 2022 - Code a01388 (appeal dismissed):

  • More than one wall facing the same direction can form “the rear wall” (in the case where the elevation is staggered horizontally). (*)
  • The rear wall of an original rear projection does form part of “the rear wall”.
    [Note: The original rear projection is single storey].
  • The side wall of an original (part-width) rear projection (i.e. the side wall facing the infill area) is “a wall forming a side elevation”. (*)
    [Note: The original rear projection is single storey].
  • For example, an extension to the side of an original (part-width) rear projection where the extension has a width greater than half the width of the original house is not permitted development. (*)
  • For example, an extension to the side of an original (part-width) rear projection where the extension exceeds 4m in height is not permitted development. (*)
  • For example, an extension to the side of an original (part-width) rear projection where the extension has more than a single storey is not permitted development. (*)
