“GPDO Part 1 (All Classes) – LDC Appeal Decisions” – 3 additional appeal decisions (total = 1,620) …

The "GPDO Part 1 (All Classes) - LDC Appeal Decisions" document has been updated to include 3 additional appeal decisions relating to householder permitted development legislation, for which the conclusions are as follows:

January 2023 - Code a01514 (appeal dismissed):

  • More than one wall facing the same direction can form “the rear wall” (in the case where the elevation is staggered horizontally). (*)
  • In the above diagrams, “Extension F” is subject to the “extend beyond” type restrictions in relation to “Wall 1” and “Wall 2”. [Note: The diagrams are viewable within the “Extend beyond” topic of this document].
    [Note: This appeal decision relates to “the rear wall”].
  • 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 Inspector comments on the hypothetical situation “If I were to regard the [existing] living room projection as being part of the original dwellinghouse”].
    [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. (*)
  • Where a proposed extension (under Class A) would be attached to an existing extension, then the phrase “[the] total enlargement” applies to the combined structure. [Note: In other words, the combined structure should be assessed against those limitations and conditions of Class A that apply to “[the] total enlargement”].
    [Note: The Inspector comments on the hypothetical situation “If [the existing kitchen projection] were to be regarded as an existing enlargement of the dwellinghouse, rather than part of the original dwellinghouse”].
    [Note: Relates to A.1(ja) (with respect to A.1(j)) of the GPDO 2015].
