Class D – Driver information systems
We will not be expanding upon Class D, which is for driver information system and any apparatus required, within Planning Geek at this time.
Class D – driver information systems
D. The installation, alteration or replacement of system apparatus by or on behalf of a driver information system operator.
Development not permitted
D.1 Development is not permitted by Class D if—
(a) in the case of the installation, alteration or replacement of system apparatus other than on a building or other structure—
(i) the ground or base area of the system apparatus would exceed 1.5 square metres; or
(ii) the system apparatus would exceed a height of 15 metres above ground level; or
(b) in the case of the installation, alteration or replacement of system apparatus on a building or other structure—
(i) the highest part of the apparatus when installed, altered, or replaced would exceed in height the highest part of the building or structure by more than 3 metres; or
(ii) the development would result in the presence on the building or structure of more than 2 microwave antennas.
D.2 Development is permitted by Class D subject to the following conditions—
(a) any system apparatus is, so far as practicable, sited so as to minimise its effect on the external appearance of any building or other structure on which it is installed; and
(b) any system apparatus which is no longer needed for a driver information system is removed as soon as reasonably practicable.
Interpretation of Class D
D.3 For the purposes of Class D—
“driver information system operator” means a person granted an operator’s licence under section 10 of the Road Traffic (Driver Licensing and Information Systems) Act 1989 (operators’ licences); and
“system apparatus” has the meaning assigned to that term by section 8(6) of that Act (definitions of driver information systems etc.).
