The guidelines then attempt to define it as meaning the parcel of land immediately associated with that structure and which is (or was) in use for the purpose of the structure.
I think it means the property on which a building stands but the lawyers could probably pick holes in that.

We have been told that the 4sq m that goes beyond the gable end of the house is not exempted as it is not considered to the rear of the dwelling but to the side so we are trying to figure out (for the Section 5 application) if the extension is within the curtilage of the dwelling in order for me to answer one of the questions. There are no protected buildings anywhere near by.
Yeah but said garage could be 100m away, but blocking a vista or deliberately designed view or setting of said structure no:confused:
