DC Casebook: Housing: New build - Single-storey condition ruled superfluous

A condition imposed on a planning permission for a house in East Sussex restricting construction to a single storey has been deleted after an inspector decided that it was superfluous.

The council imposed the condition to protect neighbours' amenity. The inspector considered that an assessment of whether one or two storeys would be acceptable could be left until reserved matters were submitted. This would allow the council to control the precise position of the building, its size, the number of habitable rooms and its proximity to other properties, she reasoned.
