Due process

A post over at The Stirrer caught my eye about Planning Officers holding meetings in private with developers and Sport England about some land just across the border from here, Harborne, in Birmingham. One bit that stood out was there appears to be a letter that Sport England have saying that proposals to develop part of the playing field “did receive support in principle from the City Council’s planning officers.”

Two Tory councillors for Harborne deny any knowledge of either the meeting, or the letter... but given the allegation that...
it’s even been claimed that council leader and Harborne councillor Mike Whitby was present, although this has not been confirmed
I suspect we haven't heard the last of this little kerfuffle.
