  1. I bet if Tesco plc didn't get its own way in a planning application he'd be quick off the mark.

  2. it's interesting the different takes on what "localism" is going to mean in terms of planning. I'm far from convinced local communities will have more of a say. I think, given the wider changes to planning policy, we'll end up with more, not less, ill advised, inappropriate planning consents.
