I have watched with great interest as a member of councils’ Development Assessment Panel the expectations that people have in making a representation on a particular development application.
I have also watched, with dismay, these same people march out of the Development Assessment Panel meeting upset that their views appear not to have been taken into consideration.
With this in mind I draw the attention of anyone reading this blog to the following link from the Local Government Association web site. Hope it helps.
Of course this only covers half the storey. More later.
