Incidental use - What some of the Appeal Inspectors have said on C of LD Appeals relating to this issue.


The following appeal summary has been written by Steve Speed, and is available on his website www.planningjungle.com


 

SO WHAT DOES THE TERM - “INCIDENTAL TO THE ENJOYMENT OF THE DWELLINGHOUSE” MEAN?:

 

Appeal decisions (or parts of appeal decisions) that relate to whether or not an outbuilding accords with the phrase “required for a purpose incidental to the enjoyment of the dwellinghouse as such” are not summarised in these appeal examples & general discussions.

 

Instead, these appeal decisions are listed below, with (where possible) a summary of the types of rooms involved, and an indication of whether or not the Inspector found them to be “incidental”. Please note that this list was started at the end of 2009, and therefore only contains appeal decisions after this date:

Conclusion: 

22 September 2009

Bywood, Honeypot Lane 

APP/G2245/X/09/2100324 

Outbuilding containing bedroom. 

The Inspector found that a bedroom, which is primary residential accommodation, is not incidental.  

22 September 2009

10 Church Road

APP/W0530/X/09/2101282 

Two extensions to existing outbuilding, to include new kitchen and study. 

The Inspector stated that “primary living accommodation” is taken to be “part of the normal facilities that could be expected to be provided within a dwellinghouse”, and that therefore the proposed kitchen would be “primary living accommodation”. The Inspector stated that previous appeal decisions have established that such accommodation would not be considered as being used for purposes categorised as ‘incidental’ to the enjoyment of the main house and would not therefore be permitted by Class E. The Inspector stated that ‘incidental’ purposes are regarded as being those connected with the running of the dwellinghouse or with the domestic or leisure activities of its occupants, as distinct from ordinary living accommodation. 

 

The Inspector noted that in Rambridge v SSE (1996) the court held that Class E does not permit a building that is designed from the start as primary residential accommodation, and that in Peche D’Or Investments v SSE (1996) the court rejected the proposition that a building that had been built for ‘incidental’ purposes under Class E could, a day later, be changed to primary residential accommodation. However, the Inspector acknowledged that if a building had genuinely been constructed for incidental purposes, planning permission was not required for a later change [to primary living accommodation], provided the building remained within the same planning unit. 

 

The Inspector concluded that in this particular case, as the outbuilding is an existing curtilage building, it [the existing outbuilding] could now be altered internally to include primary living accommodation such as a kitchen and bedrooms, provided it remained part of the same planning unit as the main house. Nonetheless, to be classed as permitted development under the revised Class E, any extension to the building could only be for accommodation 

required for purposes incidental to the enjoyment of the original dwellinghouse 

19 October 2009

The Cherries, Wingham Well Lane 

APP/X2220/X/09/2097943 

Outbuilding containing domestic garage and store. 

The proposed outbuilding would have had dimensions approx 12m x 9m. The Inspector found that it would not be incidental. 

28 October 2009

Porters Cross, Crazies Hill 

APP/X0360/X/09/2102032 

Outbuilding containing swimming pool, two changing rooms, and a plant room. 

The proposed outbuilding would have floor area approx 200m2, in comparison to a house with footprint approx 235m2 and floor area approx 300m2. The Inspector found that the proposed outbuilding would be incidental. 

11 November 2009

30 Linksway 

APP/R5510/X/09/2103482 

Outbuilding containing swimming pool. 

The proposed outbuilding would have size 6.6m x 20.45m (= 144m2) within a site of size 25m x 75m (= 2025m2). The Inspector found that the proposed outbuilding would be incidental. 

13 November 2009

31 Vicarage Road

APP/Z3635/X/09/2102498 

Outbuilding containing living room, two bedrooms, and a bathroom, but no kitchen. 

The Inspector stated that Class E is directed to incidental purposes (a garden store, summer house, pet animal housing or the like) rather than the provision of additional residential accommodation. The Inspector stated that even if the proposed outbuilding is not self-contained (because it does not contain a kitchen), the clear and stated intention is for the proposed outbuilding to provide additional residential accommodation, and therefore it would not be incidental. 

17 November 2009

14 Fairfax Road

APP/L5810/X/09/2105421 

Outbuilding containing home office / spare overnight bedroom, bathroom, toilet. 

Taking into account his view that the overnight bedroom accommodation would be an infrequent use, the Inspector found that this would be incidental. 

17 November 2009

14 Fairfax Road

APP/L5810/X/09/2110592 

“Outbuilding” (i.e. for an unspecified purpose). 

Taking into account that the onus is on the applicant to specify the purpose to which the outbuilding is to be put, the Inspector found that he could not conclude that a structure simply marked as “outbuilding” would be incidental. 

2 December 2009

Little Heath, Roman Ride 

APP/X0360/X/09/2107624 

Outbuilding containing double garage for the storage of 

classic cars, gym/studio, sauna, WC and boiler room. 

The proposed outbuilding would have footprint 173m2, in comparison to the dwelling (bungalow) which has footprint 179m2. The Inspector found that the proposed outbuilding would be incidental. 

15 January 2010

Windrush, The Ridgeway 

APP/Q5300/X/09/2111395 

Outbuilding containing gym, playroom, “kitchen” (consisting of sink and fitted cupboards), wash handbasin, WC, with electricity and water supply, and underfloor heating. 

Taking into account the size of the large detached house next door, the proximity of its conservatory, extending a significant distance to the west of the main building towards the appeal structure, the latter’s total lack of sleeping accommodation and the absence of any fence or other means of enclosure separating the two buildings from each other, the Inspector found that the outbuilding is incidental. The Inspector also awarded costs against the Council. 

25 January 2010

86 Hitherbroom Road

APP/R5510/X/09/2111737 

Outbuilding marked on plan as “exercise/playroom”. 

The Inspector stated that: 

 

“Class E of the GPDO does not permit the erection of outbuildings for use as additional residential accommodation of the sort which would normally be found in a house, for example as an additional bedroom or living room. It is therefore appropriate to examine the reasons for development being "required" under Class E - otherwise the GPDO would be open to abuse by sham proposals, involving buildings being constructed for one stated purpose and then being used for another purpose.” 

 

The Inspector concluded that the annotation “exercise/playroom”, with no other information, was vague, and that the applicant had failed to put forward evidence on which the Inspector could base a finding that the building is reasonably required for a purpose incidental to the enjoyment of the dwellinghouse as a dwellinghouse. 

26 January 2010

81 Bourne Avenue

APP/R5510/X/09/2110511 

Outbuilding as “playroom”. 

Virtually identical to 86 Hitherbroom Road appeal decision notice – applicant had failed to demonstrate that “playroom” was reasonably required for a purpose incidental to the enjoyment of the dwellinghouse as such. 

18 March 2010

41 London Road

APP/X0360/X/09/2112801 

Erection of an outbuilding for use as a playroom, gym, sauna, workshop and store. 

 

The new building would house a playroom, a gym, a sauna, a workshop and a store. The playroom would house a full size snooker table while the appellant regards the rest of the accommodation as a scale that is suitable for all the occupants of the dwelling. It is also said on her behalf that the store is of a reasonable size for “leisure/ garden/ maintenance equipment” because the house itself has four double bedrooms. 

 

The appellant has an unusually long, but relatively narrow garden at the rear of her terrace house. From the plans submitted with the application to the Council the new building would be 6.4 m wide and 41.4m long. It would be a little over 2m from each side boundary and 2.5 to 3.5m from the rear boundary. It would lie about 15m from the rearmost part of the existing house. The roof would be pitched with a ridge height of 3.8m. 

 

The plans show that the footprint of the existing house is about 100m² while the new single storey building would have a footprint of 285 m². Other houses in the row have shorter gardens while on one side the lower half of the appellant’s garden adjoins a Council car park. 

The Inspector stated that 

 

“Purposes incidental to the enjoyment of a dwellinghouse have been held to include those connected with the running of the dwellinghouse or with domestic and leisure activities of the persons living in it. Specifically, a games room to accommodate a billiards table has been held (in an appeal decision reported at [1987] JPL 733) to satisfy that objective. In Emin v SSE [1989] JPL 909 the High Court accepted that it would be wrong to consider that the proposed buildings could not reasonably be said to be required for a use reasonably required for the enjoyment of the dwellinghouse simply because it would provide more accommodation for secondary activities than the house provided for primary activities; that was not part of the test as to which buildings fell within this class. 

 

Two principles have emerged from the cases. First that something which is ‘incidental’ cannot be a dwellinghouse nor, therefore, can it be for something for the provision of a dwellinghouse purpose, such as a bedroom or kitchen. Secondly, a “purpose incidental to the enjoyment of the dwellinghouse as such” is a broad concept. It is a matter of fact and degree in each case. The building must be “required” for the incidental purpose, it is a matter primarily for the occupier to demonstrate what incidental purposes he intends to enjoy.  

 

In this case the appellant has given little by way of any explanation for the unusually large size of the proposed building. Although the appellant says the store is ‘adequate’ for hobby equipment, garden furniture, garden maintenance equipment and recreational equipment, a room of 11m x 6m appears to be excessive for what would become a much smaller garden. Similarly although it is said on behalf of the appellant that the gymnasium is required to accommodate running, rowing, multifunctional weight training equipment and floor space for exercises, 7.5m x 6m again appears to be excessive. It appears that the snooker room is likely to have a bar area. There is also some reference to the need to take into account wheelchair and disability cart movements although nothing in the submissions made on behalf of the appellant indicates that occupants of the house are disabled. 

 

In Wallington v SSW (1991) 62 &CR 150, the Court of Appeal held that the words “as such” in the Act must mean “of and incidental to the enjoyment of the dwellinghouse as a dwelling-house.” The mere fact that the occupier may genuinely regard the relevant activity as a hobby could not suffice to prove that the purpose was incidental to the enjoyment of the dwellinghouse as a dwellinghouse. An objective standard had to be applied in considering the relevance or otherwise of the provisions of the GPDO. 

 

In Emin it was said that “the fact that such a building had to be required for a purpose associated with the enjoyment of the dwellinghouse could not rest solely on the unrestrained whim of him who dwelt there. It connoted some sense of reasonableness in all the circumstances of the particular case…..the word ‘incidental’ connoted an element of subordination in land use terms in relation to the enjoyment of the dwellinghouse itself.” The judge also said “...the question as to whether a building qualifies for the purpose of the order would raise questions of fact and degree which are quintessentially appropriate for consideration by a planning authority or the Secretary of State or his Inspector, who were well practised in the problem of resolving sometimes difficult and finely balanced issues of fact in the field of land use 

planning.” 

 

Having regard to this judicial advice and the circumstances of this case, the proposed new building exceeds what may be reasonably considered as incidental to the enjoyment of the dwellinghouse. The building would be much larger than the house itself, even including the upper floors. Although the activities designated on the plans of the new building fall into categories that, individually, may be acceptable as incidental to the enjoyment of the dwelling house, taken together they occupy an unreasonable amount of space. Thus as a matter of fact and degree the proposals do not come within the terms of Class E of Part 1 of GPDO.”

21 April 2010

Beech Coppy, Bradford Lane 

APP/R0660/X/10/2120458 

Two outbuildings, one to contain a swimming pool, sauna, bar area, changing room, WC, plant room, store (the “Pool House”), and the other to contain a snooker room, gym, bar area, kitchenette area, changing room and WC (the “Leisure Building”). 

The Inspector found that the proposed outbuildings would be incidental. 

7 June 2010

33 Station Road , Sunningdale 

APP/T0355/X/10/2121005 

Outbuilding marked “Games Room”. 

The Inspector found that the proposed outbuilding would not be incidental, and stated the following: 

 

“There is no explanation why a building of this size is required for use as a games room. In my view, in order to satisfy Class E it is not enough to meet the physical criteria and state that the building will be used as a games room. It is also necessary to provide enough evidence to show, on the balance of probability, that the building is reasonably required for a use which is truly incidental and not for a primary residential use. Taking into account all the circumstances and the absence of any explanation as to why the building is required for the stated purpose, I conclude on balance that this building is not required for a purpose incidental to the enjoyment of the dwellinghouse as such. It would not therefore be permitted development under Class E.” 

11 June 2010

83 Bodley Road , New Malden 

APP/Z5630/X/09/2114743 

APP/Z5630/X/10/2124654 

Family entertainment / fitness / play / cinema room, refreshment & changing room, shower room, hobby workshop & storage. 

The Inspector found that the proposed outbuildings would be incidental. 

22 June 2010

15 Field Close, Hounslow, TW4, 6LN 

APP/F5540/X/09/2118743 

Room containing a dining table, bed, and clothes hanging up. 

 

(Structure is an extension, but the Inspector considered the hypothetical question of what if it was detached). 

The Inspector found that the structure would not be incidental. 

 

The Inspector also explained that a structure that does not comply with the GPDO at the point in time when it is substantially completed, can not be later altered to comply: 

 

“Moreover the provisions of the Town and Country Planning (General Permitted Development) Order 1995 (“the Order”) cannot be claimed retrospectively. In the case of R (oao Watts) v Secretary of State for the Environment, Transport and the Regions [2002] JPL 1473 Ouseley J. held that the question to be answered is whether, from the start of the development for which reliance on the provisions of the Order is claimed until the time at which it has been substantially completed, the building which is being altered pursuant to the Order has been otherwise enlarged, improved or altered so that the cubic content of the “resulting building”, including works under the Order, exceeds the cubic content of the original dwelling house by more than the specified allowance. If it does the said works cease to be protected by the Order and can be the subject of enforcement action. On this basis a structure either was or was not erected as permitted development and the structure cannot be made so retrospectively by altering it to try and make it meet the criteria in the Order.”

9 July 2010

3 Darley Green Road , Knowle, B93 8PP

APP/Q4625/X/09/2113677 

Outbuilding with 1 large open plan room and 1 smaller room, with use indicated storage, games room, hobby room, office/study. 

The Inspector found that the proposed outbuilding would not be incidental. 

 

The Inspector stated the following: 

 

“I note that individually each of the activities described above can be reasonably regarded as being ‘incidental’. However, the building would comprise a large open plan space with a smaller room to the rear. The evidence does not clearly show that the garden annexe would be used in a particular way for the incidental activities, due to the lack of complete and sufficient internal layout plans. The information submitted does not demonstrate that this building’s scale and size is necessary for the incidental uses.”

19 August 2010

The Royds, Whitechapel Road 

APP/Z4718/X/10/2127900 

Outbuilding with library, art studio, play room, store, toilet and lobby. 

 

The application originally stated that the proposed outbuilding would be used as a “granny flat” for the appellant’s father, and would also contain a library, a play room and storage rooms. Subsequently, an amended drawing was submitted showing the use of the rooms as a library, art studio, play room, store, toilet and lobby, albeit with no change to the dimensions of the proposed outbuilding. 

The Inspector found that the proposed outbuilding would not be incidental. 

 

The Inspector stated the following: 

 

“Class E does not permit the erection of outbuildings for use as additional residential accommodation of the sort which would normally be found in a house, for example as an additional bedroom or living room. It is therefore appropriate to examine the reasons for development being "required" under Class E - otherwise the GPDO would be open to abuse by sham proposals, involving buildings being constructed for one stated purpose and then being used for another one. In this instance, I am concerned that although the building appears to have been designed initially to provide a degree of living accommodation, and looks very much like a bungalow, its form, appearance and scale remain the same despite the apparent omission of the living accommodation. Although I have read that the appellant’s father is now to be accommodated in the main house, it has not been explained why a building of the size proposed is still required in the light of this change. Nor is there anything before me that shows how the accommodation, including the ‘art studio’ that would occupy a large proportion of the building’s floorspace, would function relative to ‘The Royds’. 

 

I find the proposal as it stands vague and imprecise. Merely making an application for a LDC and indicating a proposed use does not provide a case that what is proposed is, or would be, reasonably required. The submission that the uses shown are “accepted as” secondary or ancillary to the enjoyment of the dwellinghouse offers little assistance in this respect as it does not help shed much light on the matter. And, while the scale of the proposed building may well be less than that of ‘The Royds’, this has no bearing on the point at issue here. No evidence has been put forward on which I could base a finding that the building is reasonably required for a purpose incidental to the enjoyment of the dwellinghouse at ‘The Royds’. 

 

In the light of the foregoing, and mindful of the onus of proof referred to in paragraph 6 above, I am not satisfied that the evidence is sufficiently clear or compelling that it demonstrates that the proposed building would be permitted development under Class E of Part 1 of Schedule 2 of the GPDO.”

2 November 2010

12 Gladsdale Drive , Pinner, Middx, HA5 2PP 

APP/R5510/X/10/2121399 

Garage and games room. The proposed outbuilding would have area approx 52m2.  

The Inspector found that the proposed outbuilding would be incidental. 

 

The Inspector stated the following: 

 

“Garages and games rooms are capable of being a type of use which is incidental to a dwellinghouse. The court held in Emin4 that is incorrect to say that proposed buildings could not be said to be required for a use reasonably incidental to the enjoyment of the dwelling as such because they would provide more accommodation for secondary activities than the dwelling provided for primary activities; this was not part of the test as to what buildings fell within Class E. Nevertheless, the test must retain an element of objective reasonableness and should not be based on the unrestrained whim of an occupier. On the other hand, a hard objective test should not be imposed to frustrate the reasonable aspirations of a particular owner or occupier so long as they are sensibly related to the enjoyment of the dwelling. These court authorities and another indicate that with each case it is a matter of fact and degree based on the particular circumstances. 

 

… 

 

In terms of the house size the Council have produced a series of figures which they say show that the building is excessive and not subordinate in nature. The word subordinate does not appear in Class E and I am conscious of the findings in Emin. Nevertheless, having regard to the words “as such” I accept that some comparison with the size of the dwelling is a useful indicator. However, this comparison should be made against the existing building as this is the current dwellinghouse and not the original house. It is not a matter of what might have been accepted as incidental in the past but what is incidental to the current extended property, as such. 

 

The Council calculate the total floor area of the new building as being about 60 sq.m. which is about 8 sq.m. larger than the figure provided for the appellant. However, even assuming that the Council’s figure is more accurate this compares with the current footprint for the dwelling of about 97 sq.m8. So the ground coverage would be significantly less than that of the present house. Moreover, I see no reason why the floorspace at first floor level should not be included in making this assessment. Taking the Council’s figure of 52 sq.m. for the original footprint and assuming this is roughly equivalent at first floor level, the total floor area of the house would be about 150 sq.m. This reinforces my view that the proposed building would be incidental.”

11 November 2010

3 Phelps Way , Hayes, Middlesex UB3 4LH 

APP/R5510/X/10/2122954 

Outbuilding for the storage of personal goods and garden equipment. 

The Inspector found that the proposed outbuilding would not be incidental. 

 

The Inspector stated the following: 

 

“It is well established case law that additions to the normal basic living accommodation of a dwellinghouse could not be expected to be “incidental to the enjoyment of the dwellinghouse, as such”. Furthermore, the physical sizes of the host and “incidental” building are relevant considerations for me to take into account in deciding whether or not the proposed development is reasonably required for an incidental purpose. 

 

The appellant has provided no evidence to explain what kind of “personal goods” he intends to store and why they can not be accommodated in the dwellinghouse. In the absence of such evidence, I consider that storage of personal goods constitutes a purpose which is integral to and normally accommodated in a dwellinghouse. Therefore, it is not an incidental use. Furthermore, I note that the footprint of the proposed building is significantly larger than the ground floor of the existing two storey dwellinghouse. The appellant has given me no evidence from which I could conclude that such a large building is reasonably required for storage of “personal goods”  

 

The garden equipment, referred to by the appellant, must be intended for personal use in the garden of the dwellinghouse; as opposed to use in conjunction with a business. I have sought to compare the size of the proposed building (admittedly shared with the storage of personal goods) with the size of the garden remaining after development. The minimal size of garden left after construction of the outbuilding would need a modest level of maintenance which could be accomplished with a lawn-mower and a small number of hand tools such as spades, forks and implements of a similar nature. The space available in the large outbuilding proposed would far exceed the area required for storage of such equipment. Hence, on the basis of the evidence supplied to me, the comparison leads me to the conclusion that, in terms of use of the building for storage of garden equipment, the proposed building is not “required for a purpose incidental to the enjoyment of the dwellinghouse, as such”.”

19 November 2010

Shepherds Croft, Wigley Bush Lane, South Weald, Brentwood CM14 5QN 

APP/H1515/X/10/2125337 

Outbuilding to enclose swimming pool and games room (with footprint significantly larger than the footprint of the house and annex). 

The Inspector found that the proposed outbuilding would be incidental. 

19 November 2010

Thorndon Cottage, Warley Gap, Little Warley, Brentwood CM13 3DP 

APP/H1515/X/10/2124574 

The proposal is for a building about 30m long by 10.5m wide for the purpose of a swimming pool, gym, sauna and stables. 

The Inspector found that the proposed outbuilding would be incidental. 

23 November 2010

13 Pine Place , Hayes, UB4 8RA

APP/R5510/X/10/2124692 

Outbuilding with five rooms and floor space approx 63m2, stated as to be used as playroom.  

The Inspector found that the outbuilding would not be incidental. 

 

The Inspector stated the following: 

 

“The Courts have held that in the expression “required for a purpose incidental to the use of the dwelling house”, the word “required” should be interpreted to mean “reasonably required”. Thus in this type of case it is for the appellant to show that the proposed outbuilding is reasonably required for a purpose incidental to the use of the dwelling-house at No. 13. 

 

The outbuilding would be a substantial structure. The plans show it divided into five separate rooms. The total floor space would be about 63 square metres. Apart from stating that the outbuilding is to be used as a playroom no other evidence has been produced by the appellant to show why the proposal is reasonably required for a purpose incidental to the enjoyment of the dwellinghouse at No. 13. 

 

For the reasons given above I conclude that the Council’s refusal to grant a Certificate of Lawfulness of Proposed Development in respect of a single-storey outbuilding in the rear garden of 13 Pine Place, Hayes, UB4 8RA was wellfounded and that the appeal should fail. I will exercise accordingly the powers transferred to me in Section 195(3) of the 1990 Act”.

29 November 2010

Woodhurst, Cattlegate Road, Northaw, Enfield, EN2 8AU 

APP/C1950/X/10/2135203 

Outbuilding to enclose swimming pool (footprint 260m2). 

The Inspector found that the proposed outbuilding would be incidental. 

 

The Inspector stated the following: 

 

“It is established in law and in practice that purposes incidental to the enjoyment of a dwellinghouse would not include the provision of a bedroom or kitchen or some other similar domestic purpose of a kind that would be akin to the primary or normal accommodation provided in a dwellinghouse. As a matter of fact and degree, such domestic functions would be part-and-parcel of such normal accommodation as would be found typically in most, if not all, dwellinghouses. The term “incidental” has been found to mean something which would be subordinate to and parasitic upon the continuing presence of the primary use for its very existence. Moreover, for development to be permitted by the provisions of Class E, it must also be “…required for a purpose incidental to the enjoyment of the dwellinghouse as such.” The Courts have held that “required” should be interpreted as meaning “reasonably required”. 

 

In Emin v Secretary of State for the Environment and Mid-Sussex DC (1989) 58 P&CR 416; [1989] JPL 909, referred to by the main parties in the present case, it was held that the provision of accommodation for a hobby use was capable of being required for a purpose incidental to the enjoyment of a dwellinghouse. Indeed, specific reference in Class E to a “swimming pool” is a clear indicator that such development, whether it comprises merely an excavation in the ground to form an open-air swimming pool, or includes, in addition, a building or enclosure that accommodates a swimming pool, would be capable of being development required for a purpose incidental to the enjoyment of the dwellinghouse as such. 

 

It was further held that it would not be sufficient to deprive the appellant of the permission granted by the GPDO by consideration, taken in isolation, of the physical size of the proposed building in relation to that of the dwelling; the mere size of the dwelling could not dictate the physical size of the facility within a building and the size of the building itself. However, it must be required for a purpose incidental to the enjoyment of the dwellinghouse, as a dwellinghouse, and not for any extraneous purpose. In this respect, the Courts have also held that such use would not accommodate the “unrestrained whim” of the householder, but would require a sense of reasonableness”.

23 December 2010

8 Durham Avenue , Hounslow, TW5 0HG 

APP/F5540/X/10/2134356 

Gym with internal floor area of approx 44m2. 

The Inspector found that the proposed outbuilding would not be incidental. 

 

The Inspector stated the following: 

 

“The judgement in Emin held that the scale of the activities that go on in an outbuilding is important in deciding whether that outbuilding is required for a purpose incidental to the enjoyment of a dwellinghouse as a dwellinghouse and not for extraneous purposes. The question of scale, or size, is relevant because there must be a prospect that the nature and scale of such activities could go beyond a purpose merely incidental to the enjoyment of the dwelling as such. Clearly scale cannot be ignored in assessing whether what is proposed is required for the necessary incidental purpose. It is an assessment that needs to be made additional to, and separate from, any considerations of size in relation to Class E.1 of the 2008 Order. 

 

In this case the proposed outbuilding would have an internal floor area of about 44 sq m. It would be used as a gym. The floor area to be devoted to this use seems very large to me. In my experience it would be much larger than what is available for that purpose in most domestic settings. Adequate gym facilities could be provided within a much smaller area. The appellant has not explained why the large area proposed is required and the burden of proof is on him. 

 

Bearing in mind the August 2010 publication by the Department for Communities and Local Government, “Permitted development for householders - Technical guidance”, it would be wrong to take exception to the use proposed for the outbuilding if one ignores the question of scale. 

 

In a nutshell, however, the appellant must show that what is proposed is reasonably required for a purpose incidental to the use of the dwellinghouse. He has not done so with regard to the scale of the outbuilding. I conclude therefore, on the evidence now available, that the Council’s refusal to grant a lawful development certificate was well-founded and that the appeal should fail so far as the outbuilding is concerned”.

23 December 2010

46 Fairway Avenue, West Drayton, UB7 7AN

APP/R5510/X/10/2130342 

The proposed outbuilding would have a footprint of 82.2 sq m. It would contain a home office of virtually 30 sq m, a gym not much smaller, a store of about 15 sq m and a shower room. 

The Inspector found that the proposed outbuilding would not be incidental. 

 

The Inspector stated the following: 

 

“The judgement in Emin held that the scale of the activities that go on in an outbuilding is important in deciding whether that outbuilding is required for a purpose incidental to the enjoyment of a dwellinghouse as a dwellinghouse and not for extraneous purposes. The question of scale, or size, is relevant because there must be a prospect that the nature and scale of such activities could go beyond a purpose merely incidental to the enjoyment of the dwelling as such. The Council’s comparison in the case before me of the outbuilding’s size with that of the house may be a little simplistic, but scale cannot be ignored in assessing whether what is proposed is required for the necessary incidental purpose. It is an assessment that needs to be made additional to, and separate from, any considerations of size in relation to Class E.1 of the 2008 Order. 

 

In this case the proposed outbuilding would have a footprint of 82.2 sq m. It would contain a home office of virtually 30 sq m, a gym not much smaller, a store of about 15 sq m and a shower room. I take no exception to the size of the store in assessing whether this is a required incidental purpose, but the floor areas to be devoted to home office use and gym use seem very large to me. In my experience they would be much larger than what is available for those purposes in most domestic settings. Adequate home office and gym facilities could be provided within much smaller areas. The appellant has not explained why the large areas proposed are required and, as the Council say, the burden of proof is on him. The fact that the 30 sq m of building A, proposed to be demolished, appears to be used as a home office, does not appear crucial to me in assessing whether the similar space to be used in the proposed outbuilding for that purpose is a required incidental purpose. 

 

Bearing in mind the August 2010 publication by the Department for Communities and Local Government (DCLG), “Permitted development for householders - Technical guidance”, it would be wrong to take exception to the uses proposed for the outbuilding if one ignores the question of scale. I agree with the appellant that the only use that would amount to primary living accommodation would be the shower room, and that would be acceptable as ancillary to the gym. Although the Council point out that the other uses intended are not specifically mentioned in the DCLG publication, the examples given there do not amount to an exhaustive list. 

 

In a nutshell, however, the appellant must show that what is proposed is reasonably required for a purpose incidental to the use of the dwellinghouse. He has not done so with regard to the scale of his proposal. I conclude therefore, on the evidence now available, that the Council’s refusal to grant a lawful development certificate was well-founded and that the appeal should fail.” 

My decision above is in exercise of the powers transferred to me under section 

195(3) of the 1990 Act as amended.

Magnolia House, Westwood Road, Windlesham, Surrey, GU20 6LP 

APP/D3640/X/10/2130855 

Building A would house a pool/games room, gymnasium, spa, sauna, steam room and changing and shower facilities while building B would accommodate a garden room, office, cloakroom and incidental kitchen/store. Each building would have a floorspace of about 192 square metres. 

The Inspector found that the proposed outbuilding B would not be incidental.

48 Waltham Drive , Edgware, London, HA8 5PE 

APP/M5450/X/10/2140019 

Proposed outbuilding that would include a kitchen, a bathroom, a dining room, a lounge and a bedroom. 

The Inspector found that the proposed outbuilding would not be incidental. 

 

The Inspector stated the following: 

 

“The application is for accommodation that would include a kitchen, a bathroom, a dining room, a lounge and a bedroom. With these facilities it would be an independent unit of living accommodation. It would not be a building designed for use incidental to the enjoyment of the dwellinghouse. The proposed development therefore conflicts with Class E Part 1 of the Schedule to the Town and Country Planning (General Permitted Development) (Amendment) (No.2) (England) Order 2008 which amends Schedule 2 of the 1995 Order and would not be lawful. The Borough Council’s decision to refuse the application was therefore well founded.”

APP/R5510/X/10/2132311 

Proposed outbuilding consisting of games room, gym, and “WC” (containing shower). 

The Inspector found that the proposed outbuilding would not be incidental. 

 

The Inspector stated the following: 

 

“It seems to me that a Shower Room is, like a bathroom, primary living accommodation rather than being for a purpose incidental to the enjoyment of a dwellinghouse as such. As a consequence I consider that the building does not constitute permitted development within Class E and I conclude that the Council’s decision to refuse the grant of a LDC was therefore well-founded. Accordingly I shall dismiss the appeal.”

172 Staines Road East , Sunbury-on-Thames, Middlesex TW16 5AY 

APP/Z3635/X/10/2139073 

Proposed outbuilding consisting of storage room, games room, and bathroom. 

The Inspector found that the proposed outbuilding would not be incidental. 

 

The Inspector stated the following: 

 

“But something which is incidental cannot itself be a dwelling house, nor, therefore as a matter of common sense, can it be something for the provision of a primary dwelling house purpose, such as a bedroom, kitchen or even a bathroom. The proposed building includes a bathroom. Despite the appellant’s explanation regarding the need for such a facility (on the grounds of convenience of use for the games room) its provision would seem to me, as a matter of fact and degree, to exceed to scope of the works permitted by Part 1, Class E, of the GPDO. Thus as submitted the scheme, for a new building (which includes the bathroom), would not satisfy the ancillary use test required to make it permitted development”. 

9 March 2011

39 Rushdene Road , Eastcote, Pinner, Middlesex, HA5 1SW 

APP/R5510/X/10/2141919
