It's like we don't need planning at all

The attempt of Rother District Council to uphold its remit to oversee the built environment within its boundaries has been defeated, as it caves in and lets McCartney keep his illegally-constructed buildings.

McCartney has cut a deal with the council which will see him pull down one of the buildings he had no right to construct, in order to keep the other building he'd not been given permission to put up.

That's the firm hand of Rother District Council at work, then. It's akin to stealing two pies from a windowsill, and agreeing to return one if you can keep the other.
