“GPDO Part 1 (All Classes) – LDC Appeal Decisions” – 2 additional appeal decisions (total = 1,722) …

The "GPDO Part 1 (All Classes) - LDC Appeal Decisions" document has been updated to include 2 additional appeal decisions relating to householder permitted development legislation, for which the conclusions are as follows:

October 2023 - Code a01616 (appeal dismissed):

  • Where a property has a secondary roof that’s significantly lower than the main roof, then an extension on top of this secondary roof should be assessed against either Class A or Class B. (*)
    [Note: The secondary roof is the roof of an original two-storey rear projection on three-storey house].
  • This appeal decision provides an example of where it was concluded that a particular roof extension does not constitute “an enlargement which joins the original roof to the roof of a rear or side extension” for the purposes of B.2(b). (*)
    [Note: The proposed roof extension on the original two-storey rear projection would join onto the rear wall of the main house].
  • In the first of the above diagrams, (at least) part of “Roof Extension C” “extends beyond” the outside face of “Wall 1” (i.e. for the purposes of B.2(b)(ii)). [Note: The diagrams are viewable within the “Extend beyond” topic of this document]. (*)
    [Conclusion: The roof extension does not comply with B.2(b)(ii) for the above reason].
    [Note: The gap between the roof extension and “Wall 1” is 0m (i.e. no gap)].

October 2023 - Code a01615 (appeal allowed):
