General Matters: - It is proposed to restrict visible manifestations to the rear wall of the house. However, if well designed, these can be disguised by planters, screens and other soft landscaping measures and therefore have very little visual impact, even if positioned deeper within the garden area.

· Sequences of back gardens act as informal 'garden squares' and require protection no less firm than that afforded to squares themselves.

It would therefore be appropriate to include reference to any externally visible elements at the rear of the property reflecting the character of the surrounding rear garden area: if the character of that rear garden
