I am deeply shocked at the Development Control Committee’s vote on Thursday night to permit the horrendous Dawnay Day scheme. This looks horribly like a Liberal Democrat stitch up.
I am appalled at the arrogance of those councillors who feel they can ignore the expert evidence of all those who spoke against the proposals, and I urge everybody who is concerned about our local community and the riverside to support your committee and lobby the Secretary of State to hold a public inquiry. This whole affair is profoundly damaging to the reputation of local politics and democracy. The Liberal Democrats must pay the price in the elections in May.
I particularly want to congratulate the riverside terrace committee on all the excellent work you have put in so far. Don’t get despondent – this will only serve to gain you more support.
