Hi all

Just wondered if could help, Im the only existing house in an area, and planning has gone in.

My property is about 80-90 ft away from the road, that's how far set back, and all proposed properties are 10 ft away from road, so brought forward.

Do the developers have to follow the existing building line as I have set a precedent of the building line, and would majorly make my property out of character.?

Building lines are more common where there appears to be a set line that that the profile of many buildings follow. An individual house on its own set well within a plot isn’t usually taken as an established building line. The LPA would however review the size, position and orientation of the proposed plots relative to your property. If they appear to significantly impact your outlook, amenity and daylight then they ‘should not’ be approved.
