01 Paragraph 127 of the National Planning Policy Framework (NPFF) requires that development should respond to local character and history, and reflect the identity of local surroundings and materials.  Paragraph 192 adds that it is proper to seek to promote to reinforce local distinctiveness.  Saved Policy HG13 of the adopted 2007 Local Plan and emerging Policy LP8 of the Tendring District Local Plan 2013-2033 and Beyond Publication Draft 2017 are of particular relevance in this instance due to the nature of the development constituting backland development.  Saved Policy HP13 states that proposals for the residential development of backland sites will only be approved where it meets specific criteria.

The development will be served by a long narrow shared access drive that would be detrimental to the character and appearance of the locality and wholly out of character with the pattern of development in the area.

The development would constitute tandem development that could set a harmful precedent for other similar forms of development in the vicinity.

The site is located within the built up area surrounded by existing dwellings and would not create a hard urban edge.  However, the development is considered to be out of character in its setting which is characterised by linear, road frontage development.

The main character of Maltings Road is road frontage, linear development with an established front building line.  The proposed development would represent an unacceptable form of backland development being wholly out of character with the area setting a harmful precedent for other cramped inappropriate plot sub-divisions to the rear of other properties within the street and surrounding area.

For these reasons, the proposal is considered contrary to Saved Policy HG13 criterion iii, iv, vi and vii and the aims of the NPFF.
