Doh! It's a planning issue??!!
An auctioneer raising a planning issue??!!!
Should NOT happen full stop.
Total conflict of interest?!
And particularly so given that going on 50% of our councillors just 'happened' to be auctioneers at the height of the so-called 'boom'. And people wonder how we got into a property bubble that ordinary punters now have to pay for!
We all did 'go mad' as ek put it - and one aspect was electing way too many vested interests to our local councils. They - auctioneer-councillors - really do need to step back when there is any discussion of planning matters.
