    Sorry but just being super pedantic. Are you sure the single storey extension is permitted development. It is very difficult to get a flat roof extension to a bungalow under PD due to the eaves height.

    Anyway back to your specific question. As the guidance you quoted said "other than in the case of a hip-to-gable enlargement or an enlargement
    which joins the original roof to the roof of a rear or side extension" I believe this refers to an "L" shaped dormer that extends out over a rear extension or "outrigger" not a dormer butting up to a rear extension.

    Having said that, although Woody is correct, it is a fairly technical breach so a sympathetic planning officer on a good day might let it go. If you got the pedantic jobsworth planning officer who is having a bad day then they might pull you up on it. As it is already built I'd be inclined to keep my head down for 4 years and hope no one complains about it.
