Though this is just a hunch, I suspect that some clever-clever planner or architect once made an application claiming that the lowest floor of a building was a basement because it was 6 inches below street level (and got away with it), so ever since they have had a very strict definition of what constitutes a basement. Hence the ‘above ground level’ bit. Yours sound to me like a half-basement, so I can see where the local authority is coming from.

Don’t know any cases, I’m afraid. And the above paragraph is just wild speculation on my part (or an educated guess, depending on how you view it 🙂 ).
