Thank you Greg Clarke (Planning Minister): “It [the planning system] has become so complicated that it is actually increasingly a matter for specialists. It is very hard for people in communities to engage with the planning system; to protect the places they want to see protected. So the reason we are making these reforms is that e are transferring the power from the distant unelected bodies to local communities” (Transcript of Radio 2 news bulletin at 8am this morning). This could be tantamount to a match point in the Vale of Glamorgan Public Inquiry!
How can they dismiss the overwhelming will of the community of the Vale now?
Fracking planning Inquiry boost from unexpected source!
