Q: A developer won an appeal to build a house. The planning authority asked the inspector to impose a condition removing permitted development rights if the appeal was upheld. The inspector declined to do this, seeing no justification. Before work on the house had started, the developer submitted an application to vary the permission to allow a rear extension and a bedroom in the loft. The application was approved but the authority imposed a condition removing permitted development rights. It argued that the application was a new one, so it could impose any conditions it wished. Is this correct? MM
