01 Paragraph 6 of the National Planning Policy Framework indicates that the purpose of the planning system is to contribute to the achievement of sustainable development. The policies in paragraphs 18 to 219, taken as a whole, constitute the Government’s view of what sustainable development in England means in practice for the planning system, and paragraph 7 states that there are three dimensions to sustainable development: economic, social and environmental. Paragraph 9 states that pursuing sustainable development involves seeking positive improvements in the quality of the built, natural and historic environment, as well as in people’s quality of life and paragraph 17 lists 12 Core Principles, which include:-

o recognising the intrinsic character and beauty of the countryside.

Section 11 and paragraph 109 indicates that the planning system should contribute to and enhance the natural and local environment by protecting and enhancing valued landscapes.

Saved Policy EN3 – Coastal Protection Belt, of the Adopted Tendring District Local Plan 2007, indicates that:-

New development which does not have a compelling functional need to be located in the Coastal Protection Belt, as defined on the Proposals Map, will not be permitted. The onus will be on the applicant to prove such a need, by showing that by reason of the critical operational requirements the development cannot be located outside the Coastal Protection Belt. Even where a compelling functional need is demonstrated, the development should not significantly harm the landscape character and quality of the undeveloped coastline.

Policy EN1 – Landscape Character, seeks to protect the landscape (including estuaries, rivers and the undeveloped coastline) from development that would significantly harm the landscape character or quality.

The Emerging Tendring District Local Plan 2013-2033 and Beyond – Preferred Options Consultations Document indicates at Policy PPL2 – Coastal Protection Area, that within that area, the Council will – (a) protect the open character of the undeveloped coastline and refuse planning permission for development which does not have a compelling functional or operational requirement to be located there; and (b) require applicants to demonstrate that any development proposals will be safe over their planned lifetime.

Policy PPL3 – The Rural landscape, seeks to protect estuaries, rivers and undeveloped coast from development that would cause over-riding harm to its character and appearance.

The proposed development consists of a form of domestic development, associated with the temporary siting of a caravan for a seasonal agricultural worker, and would therefore afford a degree of permanence to a use, which by its nature is a temporary and transient use.

The proposed development is at considerable variance with the open and undeveloped nature of the Coastal Protection Belt, and in conjunction with the caravan to which it is related, the proposed decking/caravan forms an alien and intrusive feature within this sensitive area, and no functional or operational need has been demonstrated for the development on a permanent basis.

The proposal is therefore detrimental to the coastal protection belt and the countryside and due to the detrimental impact and environmental harm, the development would not consist of sustainable development and would be contrary to the guidance within the National Planning Policy Framework and the Development Plan policies stated above by failing to respect or enhance the area, provide a development that improves peoples lives and the area in which they live and by constituting unjustified and non-essential development within the Coastal Protection Belt.
