Curtilage outbuilding permitted development given specified uses by appellant

A LDC was issued allowing the owner of a dwelling in Middlesex to erect an outbuilding in the rear garden because it was permitted under Class E of Part 1 to Schedule 2 of the GPDO 2015.

The appellant stated that the 56m2 building would be used for playing pool, watching television by his teenage children and as a gym. Although the council argued that the size, scale and layout of the building meant that it was not reasonably required, an inspector disagreed. The appellant had specified precisely how it would be used. The building did not need to be of a scale and appearance of an ancillary structure and the intended playroom and gym were clearly incidental to the enjoyment of the dwellinghouse.

Inspector: David Whipps; Written representations
