LCY Planning Shenanigans

Well the planning decision by Newham Council has been deferred by the mayor's office - although they still don't appear to plan to address a number of wider concerns about the City Airport expansion application raised by Newham residents [Fight the Flights blog]. And the farcically incompetent behaviour of Newham's planning committee is also described in painful detail in the same post. Really their planning meetings are a disgrace. My own experience of being shouted down by the chair, prevented from asking questions, being forced to watch as the planning staff were caught out with a blatant lie - and then not called on it by the councillors, seems to be scarily representative of their shambolic processes. Frankly I'd sack the lot of them.
