1 November (Part 3) - About turn

Last July Bexley council’s planning committee was pretty scathing about an application to put more than 20 acres of polytunnels behind North Cray Road. Councillors Don Massey, Mike Slaughter and Val Clark in particular all put the boot in. The application was “ridiculous and condescending“. It “beggared belief”. The claims made for it were “tosh”, it was “a blot on the landscape” and would have “significant visual impact”; and last night they nodded it through with barely a whimper. Minds had miraculously been changed and one can only guess at what deals have been done.

If it was a blot on the landscape in July, it will still be a blot now.
