Consolidated Version of the Legislation:

  • The "Explanatory Memorandum" (link) to the above SI 2023 No. 747 states the following:
    - "The General Permitted Development Order was consolidated in 2015. This is the twenty-sixth amending instrument to the General Permitted Development Order. There are no current plans for a consolidation.".
  • The "GPDO 2015 (Consolidated)" document on the Planning Jungle website has been updated to incorporate the above SI 2023 No. 747, and currently incorporates a total of 30 SIs (i.e. the original SI + 29 amendment SIs).
  • Note: The "Explanatory Memorandum" refers to a "twenty-sixth" amendment SI, whereas the Planning Jungle website has identified 29 amendment SIs. It should be noted that article 1 of the above SI 2023 No. 747 includes a list of amendment SIs, but one of these SIs does not amend the GPDO 2015 (i.e. its inclusion within this list appears to be an error), and (at least) three SIs are missing from this list.
