I have a lot of sympathy for the residents of Twyford Gardens over the planning permission that has been granted for a property near their boundaries, without it going to the development control committee.
I am slightly puzzled and confused by Coun Charmaine Morgan’s comments that councillors should determine what comes to committee (Journal, May 30).
Every week, all councillors receive a planning list of new applications and all have the opportunity to submit any application to the committee, especially the ones within their wards, which I have done on occasions.
Coun Morgan appears to have forgotten about this process when making her comments.
