A planning application that I’ve helped local residents object to, has gone to appeal.
The residents thought I could still make a difference, while no longer being a local councillor. So, I invested a day of my time to compose a three page letter to the Planning Inspectorate. Hoping that my arguments help among other pleadings.
It’s the intellectual challenge that hooks my interest. Oh, and a belief in the rightness of the case, either for or against. However, self awareness on my intellectual limitations, and slow acting brain means that it always takes me longer than I think it’ll take to construct the argument. Still, it’s nice to be wanted.
