    is there a limit to the commuting distance you are to a unit? (Say an hour and a half), not in terms of if you get payed travel costs, but just are you physically allowed to live as far away as you want as long as you make it in for when you’re needed in the morning?

    Yes there is, hour and a half by public transport officially. Dispensation can be granted by the CO on a case by case basis, which will have to be argued for / against by your OC. It won't be granted if there is a detriment to your working ability.
