    Hi, I'm planning to do a 6m kitchen rear extension under PD but I need to leave a slight material gap between this and the existing protruding 3m side extension. I understand there are several appeal case wins about this gap, at the 2.5cm, 5cm and 10cm gap levels. If these cases are in the public domain, how/where can I find them please? (apart from planning jungle). Better still, if someone can kindly post the links on this thread or message me.

    Many thanks

    The majority of appeal cases on these small distances between extensions are actually dismissed.

    Strangely, if building a detached structure under Part E, it can be built 2.5/5cm etc from the existing house without breaching the rules.

    (you say you dont want to refer to Planning Jungle, but that site details the appeals in a convenient format, and also gives the inspector's reasoning behind the decisions).
