Permitted development: creation of access required for permitted development: Part 2: Class B

Jones v SSHCLG & Horsham District Council (2022) EWHC 520

The  permitted development right on class B of part 2 does not include the creation of an access to a classified road.


The judgment dealt with the statutory definition of classified roads under the GDPO and Highways Act and confirmed that it includes C roads despite guidance in the department of transport’s publication. 


The case also distinguishes ‘development ‘ required for the permitted development right from mere lawful use.
