What difference does it make what Environment think ? They have nothing to do with planning applications ....

Alvin

No... just that maybe he is going public with each decision in, presumably, his assumption that he can put pressure on the planners this way.

An unnamed client.?

Henry would not be pleased with the planners decision.!

Yes, and there's an application in for a tattoo parlour, unisex of course. Also, a creche so that claimants don't have to take the kids with them when they go down the bookies.
