EXPLANATORY NOTE

(This note is not part of the Order)


This Order amends Parts 1 and 25 of Schedule 2 to the Town and Country Planning (General Permitted Development) Order 1995 ("the 1995 Order"). These Parts confer permitted development rights in respect of the erection of satellite and microwave antenna (as defined in article 1(2) of the Order). The amendments apply in relation to Wales.

Article 3 amends Class H of Part 1 of the 1995 Order (the installation, alteration or replacement of a satellite antenna on a dwellinghouse or within the curtilage of a dwellinghouse), increasing the number of permitted antennas to 2. It extends the permitted development rights to all types of antennas, and applies a size limit of 60cm for one of the permitted antennas, and 100cm for the other. It modifies existing exclusions from such rights by permitting roof mounted antenna to protrude above a roof, with a chimney. In such cases it restricts the height of the antenna or antennas to the highest part of the chimney, or 60cm measured from the ridge tiles of the roof, whichever is lower. It introduces a maximum cubic capacity of 35 litres for individual antennas. It also relaxes restrictions in respect of antenna on article 1(5) land (National Parks, areas of outstanding natural beauty, conservation areas etc) to permit antenna on roof slopes, walls or chimneys that are not visible from a highway.

Article 4 amends Classes A and B of Part 25 of Schedule 2 to the 1995 Order. In Class A (the installation, alteration or replacement on any building or other structure of a height of 15 metres or more of a microwave antenna and any structure intended for the support of a microwave antenna) it extends the permitted development rights to all types of antennas, and increases the number of permitted antenna to four. It modifies existing exclusions from such rights by applying a size limit for chimney mounted antenna of 60cm when measured in any linear direction. It introduces a maximum cubic capacity of 35 litres for individual antennas, and relaxes restrictions on article 1(5) land by permitting antenna on roof slopes, walls or chimneys that are not visible from a highway. With regards to Class B (the installation, alteration or replacement on any building or other structure of a height of less than 15 metres of a satellite antenna) it extends the permitted development rights to all types of antennas, and increases the number of permitted antennas to two. It applies a size limit of 60cm for one of the permitted antennas, and 100cm for the other. It modifies existing exclusions from such rights to match the exclusions from the Part1 Class H permitted development rights outlined above.

In assessing the maximum permitted antennas for both Parts 1 and 25, account must now be taken of any small antenna permitted by Class A of Part 24.

Minor incidental and consequential changes are also made to the Parts mentioned, and to article 4 of the 1995 Order.
