Regarding your item on The Lawns (October 2006), my understanding is that the principle of extending the facilities was not opposed  by the council officers. 

Their reason for recommending refusal was on the grounds that the design was not acceptable.  Having seen your photograph, I must agree with the officers’ recommendation.

This result epitomises the prime reason for the general decline in the quality of our environment.  

Our ludicrous planning system allows a lay committee comprising butchers, bakers and candlestick makers to overrule professional advisors.
