Re: Re: Citywest : Mansfield’s giant heap of crap
A bit late now, but it was repeated on Monday night as usual.
Quite the charmer, he went down very well with the audience.
His planning record was quite vigourously questioned, and on the unauthorised frame of the conference centre he was quite reflective about it all. He retold the story fairly but said little more. He said he’s not in the least concerned about the Spencer Dock National CC, that there’s ample business to go round, and that we could do with 5 or 6 conference centres there’s so much demand. Also the National CC was so long in the pipeline and with so much footdragging that he wasn’t going to wait any longer – which is a fair point from his perspective.
His planning difficulties at Weston were painted as being essential, relatively minor or relating to proceedure.
