Who guards the guards

First they forgot to get planning permission for the Academy signs. Story Here

Then they submitted a planning application with the wrong plan on it. Story Here

Now I’ve had it confirmed that the county council has indeed blundered in not submitting an application to vary the fence line of the Academy from that set by the Planning Committee which gave the original planning consent. I am told that, having had this pointed out, such an application is now imminent. That’s as it should be. People are entitled to expect the same adherence to planning law by their council as their council enforces on them when they make planning applications.

Owen Temple, who has been Consett North's Lib Dem Councillor since 2007, and Margaret Nealis are committed to working for local people in Consett, to make sure that their voice is heard at County Hall. As the county council takes a more and more centralised and "one-size-fits-all" approach, it is more important than ever for Consett to have campaigners who will stand up for this town.


Do you agree that a 3 hour time limit on the Albert Road Car Park is a good idea?
