Q Under the minor operations category in part 2, schedule 2 of the General Permitted Development Order 2015, a fence can be erected up to a metre high without needing planning permission adjacent to a highway "used by vehicular traffic". Do the words "vehicular traffic" include a cyclepath, or a cyclepath shared with pedestrians? Can I assume that a railway would not be included in this term? SE
Q A planning condition removing all residential permitted development rights was imposed on a dwelling. Since then, the garden has been lawfully extended, so that a larger area of land forms the residential curtilage. Given that permitted development rights are conferred specifically on development "within the curtilage", would the removal of these rights apply uniformly across the curtilage as enlarged? Or does the condition only apply to the curtilage as it existed at the time it was imposed? RS
