01 Paragraph 127 of the National Planning Policy Framework (2019) states that planning policies and decision should ensure that developments create places that are safe, inclusive and accessible and which promote health and well-being, with a high standard of amenity for existing and future users.

Policy QL11 of the Saved Plan states that amongst other criteria ‘development will only be permitted if the development will not have a materially damaging impact on the privacy, daylight or other amenities of occupiers of nearby properties’.  These sentiments are carried forward in Policy SPL3 of the Tendring District Local Plan 2013-2033 and Beyond Publication Draft (June 2017).

Since the determination of 16/01039/FUL on this site, there have been a number of new dwellings granted permission and constructed adjacent to the west of the site, in particular the property known as ‘Springfield’.  The proposed extension is closely related to the boundary of these properties, between 0.2m and 1m, and will therefore fail to adhere to Policy HG14 which states that extensions in excess of 4m in height should maintain a minimum of 1m separation distance to the boundary.  The extension will therefore appear oppressive, intrusive, and unneighbourly, resulting in a significantly harmful impact to the outlook of ‘Springfield’, contrary to the above national and local policies.
