Re: Re: Planning Official Misbehaving
I overheard a member of staff giving the contact details of a ‘person’ . . .
If this member of staff was working in a public area of the offices, then he/she may not occupy more than a junior role.
Of course, it’s unlikely that junior officials would risk a solo run and act without their senior’s approval.
And it’s always bad practice anyway, however innocent or well-intended the advice may be.
So Wearnicehats’ idea of a query to the senior planner is desirable.
Problem is that no formal query can be made anonymously, so your buddy will have to identify him/herself and provide a plausible (yet very common) purpose for his/her presence in the planning offices, e.g. checking on septic tank upgrading options.
