  1. In particular, enabling the various area planning committees to meet is essential. Planning is already weighted hugely in favour of the developer; residents’ comments on the planning portal are often not read by the councillors responsible for decision making in normal times, so what hope is there right now?
    It is unfair and undemocratic to delegate deciding power onto the individual planning officers, without the backup of proper scrutiny.
