THE verdict of the judicial review on the grant of planning permission for a house in the Vale of Health must remove the last shred of trust in the planning system in Camden.
Here yet another entirely inappropriate application has been recommended for approval by Camden's planning officers and their advice accepted by the elected councillors.
Like so many others it involves an application by developers rather than private citizens.
This is a serious matter and it is vital that there is now a full inquiry into all aspects of planning administration in Camden up to the decision on applications.
You may also want to watch:
This should be conducted by a chairman entirely independent of the council and with no political connections.
The council staff should have no part in the operation of the inquiry other than as witnesses when called. The inquiry's report and conclusions should be made public without prior reference to any person or body involved.
