Consolidated Version of the Legislation:

  • The "Explanatory Memorandum" (link) to the above SI 2024 No. 141 states the following:
    - "The General Permitted Development Order was consolidated in 2015. This is the
    twenty-ninth 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 2024 No. 141, and currently incorporates a total of 33 SIs (i.e. the original SI + 32 amendment SIs).
  • Note: The "Explanatory Memorandum" refers to a "twenty-ninth" amendment SI, whereas the Planning Jungle website has identified 32 amendment SIs. It should be noted that article 1 of the above SI 2024 No. 141 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) four SIs are missing from this list.
