The voters are being ignored

Re the proposed development on Station Road North.

At a special meeting held on April Fool’s Day between the council planning committee and the developers of the proposed site, the developers asked the planning committee to cancel the objections to the development.

For whatever reason, the planning committee agreed to this and had it not been for a single Lib Dem councillor who attended the meeting, this information may not have come to light.

The planning committee, made up of mainly Labour and Conservative elected councillors, don’t seen to care about the concerns of the people living in close proximity to this site.

The very people who voted them into this position are ignored but the planning committee seem quite happy to go along with anything asked of them by the developers.
