I was given planning permission for a two storey extension in 2011 with a condition that a rear window in the 1st floor of the extension should be obscure glass and that this should not been negated by opening.

The building regs chap checked to see if it opened when he did an assessment but I didn’t want to say anything at then time because I was advised by the architect not to rock the boat (there had been an objection from the neighbour to the rear).

My question is whether not this is enforceable?  Does there need to be an egress (given that this is the only standard window in the room aside from a velux in the roof)?
