This is in accordance with the SPD on Water Management.

  4. Notwithstanding the provisions of the Town and Country Planning (General Permitted development) Order 1995 as amended, substituted, extended, consolidated and/or replaced, nothing in Article 3 and Schedule 2 to that Order shall operate so as to permit the enlargement of the replacement bungalow specified in Part 1 Class A, B and E of the said schedule and no such development shall be carried out at any time without an express grant of planning permission under Part III of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990.

    Reason - To ensure that the replacement bungalow remains similar in size and scale and to the original dwelling as set out in Local Plan Policy RES9.
