  1. Surely this is a ‘Duh’ moment. Donations, planning consent, come on people. This is not rocket science.

    I have enjoyed fairy stories since young but can now appreciate the difference between lies and elaboration.

    I tend to despair at the hands of devolopers who’se grasp of reality is somewhat tenuous but profit is King.

    Existing residents have a voice. Use that voice to shout down development not inkeeping with your environment
