“GPDO Part 1 (All Classes) – LDC Appeal Decisions” – 7 additional appeal decisions (total = 1,733) …

The "GPDO Part 1 (All Classes) - LDC Appeal Decisions" document has been updated to include 7 additional appeal decisions relating to householder permitted development legislation, for which the conclusions are as follows:

November 2023 - Code a01627 (appeal dismissed):

  • The phrase “the highest part of the ... roof” relates to the property as a whole (i.e. not only to the part of the property that’s being altered or enlarged). (*)
  • Where a property has an existing (non-original) extension that’s higher than the original house, then “the highest part of the existing roof” is the highest part of the roof of this existing extension (i.e. rather than the highest part of the roof of the original house).
    [Note: The ridge-line of the existing two-storey side extension is higher than the ridge-line of the original house, and the Inspector concludes that “the highest part of the existing roof” is the ridge-line of the existing two-storey side extension].
  • For example, in such a situation, B.1(b) does allow a proposed roof extension to be higher than the highest part of the roof of the original house (i.e. so long as the proposed roof extension is not higher than the highest part of the roof of the existing extension).
    [Note: The roof extension would involve raising the main ridge-line of the original part of the house by approx 1.0m (but the resulting ridge-line would not be higher than the ridge-line of the existing two-storey side extension)].
  • For the purposes of the post-06/04/2014 version(s) of B.2(b), where the original eaves have been removed and not reinstated, then it is not possible to comply with B.2(b)(i)(aa). [Note: This conclusion assumes that the roof extension does not fall within the exceptions set out by B.2(b)(i)]. (*)
    [Note: The original eaves would be removed as part of the current works].

November 2023 - Code a01626 (appeal allowed):

  • This appeal decision provides an example of the types of factors that should be taken into consideration when determining which elevation is “the principal elevation”.
