Victory for local democracy

Yesterday Swansea Council rejected a planning application to demolish the former Earlsmoor Respite Care Home and build a new 75-bed student dwelling. Local people objected because there was no provision for car parking.

More details in today’s Evening Post (page 18)

The developer claimed that “No resident would be permitted to sign a lease if they have a car”.

Interesting comment from Swansea Council’s legal department that “Anyone not complying with the agreement could then be pursued to court.” Like that policy has worked when it comes to getting HMO landlords to comply with their agreements – Not!
