Re: Re: Planning Official Misbehaving
A primary source of bad practice in and around planning authorities is the procuring of relationships with persons of questionable design or planning ability whose claim to fame may be a relationship with a local councilor.
We took over a project where the previous incumbent – supposedly another one of these custodians of the public good the OP refers to – had submitted misleading information to the local authority and having dis-improved my client’s position (they were led and said by him, as you might imagine) he walked away from the problem.
Its was left up to us to come in and negotiate a permission based on significant planning gain, logical assurances and a state of the art treatment system.
So not only is this a questionable, possibly a corrupt practice, but it doesn’t do what it says on the tin either.
