As we all aware that statutory minimum size for room is 6.51 SQM. We have ample Kitchen and Dining area space and all bathroom facilities. However, one of the room total floor space is around 5.92 SQM.
We have visited Aylesbury Council website and it states that “Discretion may be applied by the inspecting officer in regard to room sizes providing the proposed layout is acceptable and the aggregate habitable floor area of the rooms is not less than 15m2”.
The total aggregate habitable floor area in the house would indeed be more than 15m2 and have I understood it rightly that, in that case discretion might be applied by inspecting officer and minimum size may be overridden despite statutory requirements are in place?

Any comments in relation to officers able to override statutory Room size limit and if I have understood above link correctly will be greatly appreciated.
