We have been fighting a developer as a PC fairly successfully in H18 breach.
Developer was so confident he'd win his appeal to raise his building 1.5m taller, he poured his footings and started the building before his appeal, to which he unanimously lost.
Since then, we have a new district councillor who feel's the developer should re-submit as she supports the breach of height. She has attended the site and had more than one visit and discussion with the developer and is refusing to even talk to the PC as she states, "it's a breach of conduct and unethical". She is supportive now of the developer but refusing to discuss with us why and has advised him to resubmit the application despite an unanimous 'no' vote earlier this year.
