GIVING THE PLANNING SYSTEM A GOOD SHAKE !


Seasoned practitioners will, no doubt groan at the rumour that, yet again, some one is going to give the planning system a good shake-up  As we all know, these publicity exercises usually result in chaos !



When I gave seminars on advocacy (in the days when we had them), I would always warn the assembled multitude about experts who are not. For example, I would ask Einstein about the universe and gravity etc, but I would not ask him to fix a leaking tap.  A plumber would be the better choice.

I once cross-examined a noise expert who had given the Inspector the benefit of his guidance on conservation areas.  I pointed out that he should stick to his noise meters and leave conservation areas to people who actually know about them.

So what does this have to do with Mr Cummings (who appears to be the originator of the idea) ?

Well, because he does not (as far as I know) know anything at all about town and country planning. If he did, then he would have known that the only things which these revolutions are good for is failure.  Recall how the development plan system was " speeded up" a few years ago ?   The whole thing ground to a halt because of the LDF system and the abolition of those troublesome regional strategy things.  I was involved in progessing a major housing site which stopped mid steam (at vast expense to the promoters) when the relevant regional housing supply figures were scrubbed.  I suspect that this story was repeated up and down the country.

I would suggest that the economists stick to counting beans  . . . or whatever they do !
