You can set the priority for your local repository with apt_preferences,

Package: *
Pin: release o=local-backports
Pin-Priority: 80

This requires that you set "Origin: local-backports" in the Release file
of your repository.

E.g. with /home/user/apt.conf
APT::FTPArchive::Release::Origin "local-backports";

... you can create working Packages and Release files
$ cd /your/repository
$ apt-ftparchive -c /home/user/apt.conf packages . > Packages
$ apt-ftparchive -c /home/user/apt.conf release . > Release
