The official position is.......

Earlier this week I wrote to the Manager of Development Control at SSDC, Mr David Norris on the subject of the current planning application at Badger's Cross and the web of relationships that lies behind it. That letter is reproduced below, as is Mr Norris' reply. (As usual, click on the image and it will open in a larger version.)

...............and Mr Norris' reply:

Whilst Mr Norris' reply isn't what I would have liked, it is a confirmation of the 'official' position on Badger's Cross, as opposed to the Canvin/BoonBrown version. It is now up to SSDC Planning to ensure that the conduct of this application is 'by the numbers' from here on in. Equally, it is up to the Community of Somerton to express its views clearly, as happened when ex-Local and current District Councillor Canvin sprang the surprise that was the Household Waste Recycling Centre. Writing a letter might take you half an hour but I assure you that it will be half an hour very well spent.

Till next time, I'm still Niall Connolly
