HOU15 - This policy is unsound because it is unjustified and unclear. It should be clear that flats have a provision of a 1.5 metre balcony or an area of private space or patio not both. Paragraph 5.106A is completely unclear. It sets out the 10 metre long 'rule of thumb' approach to rear gardens but how can the first 5 metres from the rear of the house not be overlooked by surrounding properties.
