Comedy of Errors…(Act Three)

29 Nov

….with very serious implications.

 PLEASE NOTE:  Plans for Knowle WON’T  be on the agenda at next Tuesday’s meeting (2pm 4 Dec ), after all. 

Decision on the planning application to demolish EDDC’s Knowle HQ and build 50 dwellings and a 60-bed care home on the site and gardens, has been postponed yet again. EDDC’s Development Management (Planning) Committee  now won’t be debating Knowle’s fate until  8th January, 2013. The reason for the delay? An error in the Economic Impact Assessment Report..

Could this second postponement, due to dodgy data, be anything to do with the unseemly haste with which this project is being pushed through by Cllr Diviani and his acolytes?

SOS has highlighted multiple errors on the Officer’s Report to councillors. So it’s  back to the drawing board time.

Any volunteers to do a Taxpayers’  Economic Impact Assessment of this continuing fiasco?

( see www.saveoursidmouth.com for more info, including yet-another-deadline for your objections (17 December) when the revised plans have been revised. Date thoughtfully set for between now and Christmas….. )

    Much ado…but still not as you’d like it.

      If the repeated planning applications for the Knowle was on T. V. it would have to be a black comedy but the trouble is the audience would find the whole scenario too unbelievable. Nobody would believe a council could be that incompetent!

        It is a very good thing that we all are now exposing the incompetence, ignorance and secrecy, of EDDC. A bright light is shining on them, illuminating the darker corners of the little world that they have claimed for their own for too long.

        Once this sorry state of the Knowle and the Local Plan is over, let us band together and vote them out.
