So if this dishonest Lib Dem campaign were successful the owner could knock down the existing half timbered victorian house, dig out a car park and stick eight or 12 apartments on there? Is that what they are fighting for?

As far as I understand it the owner could have done that at any point in a nine year saga. Would have had to get planning for any new scheme of course. But replacing the lodge with something of the same kind of aspect would get PP I think.

The plans the guy has brought forward are actually for a pretty low density and on a site he mostly already owns.

The opposition and the paper have been shameless. Even Cllr John Leech MP's EDM has a grossly misleading title.

Have you mentioned all this to David Ellison? I seem to remember he turned up at the WDRA "protest picnic".
