Planning grief

This morning I had a call from an elderly cousin of mine, who lives in another part of Westminster, about the letter he has had from an council officer about his problem with out-of-hours building work in the flat below. Seems as though officers are taking action promptly with a site visit tomorrow, but it’s certainly a reminder of how much disruption people suffer from inconsiderate builders and developers.

This month we have a number of appeals under way about new developments locally that may be good for business, but are affecting quality of life for residents. I’m going to be taking a very close interest in how they go.
