Where were the ‘eyes and ears’?

Posted on December 19 2019 at 11:24:15

As chairman of the late Lickey End Parish Council, I was frequently told that parish councils are the “eyes and ears “of the parish and as such play a valuable role in scrutinising/reporting on parish-related planning matters.

Did Barnt Green Parish Council not see the amended plan for the Cala development?

A thought: it might well be that the residents of the Cala estate, for security reasons, want a locked gate. If that is the case, the parish council should respect that.

I see no evidence that a permissive right of way existed, so the district council’s “aspiration“ seems an apt description.
