It's quite rare these days to have a site visit for a planning application but today we had two. Photos and plans just hadn't been enough last month to let us make a decision about a housing extension and today we went to look for ourselves. There are some applications which are really difficult to determine and whichever decision we take I'm left wondering if the other one would have been better. I think this is going to be one of them. It really won't be easy.
Then on to the site of a proposed wind turbine. Again, neighbour objections, but I couldn't help wondering if some of the objections weren't so much about the visual impact as about the relationship with the neighbour. Again, whichever way we vote tomorrow there are going to be some aggrieved people.
The evening was taken up with a meeting of Protect Preston Park, the community group set up to run the campaign to save the park from any inappropriate building projects such as a new secondary school. Some very encouraging reports of work that's been done and lots of enthusiasm still from people so no doubt some activities will be organised soon.
Anyone wanting to get in touch with the group should email info@protectprestonpark.co.uk
