"Adam, I am sure it is designed to save many other great buildings on the High Road, not just this one.  I know you would probably like to level the whole of the High Road and build ugly concrete monstrosities in the place of the current dwellings as it is means more money for the architectural and building industry."

Claire, with respect you don't know what I would and wouldn't like, you've never met me, you're making an assumption because I happen to currently work as a planning consultant.  One who acts both in support of some developments and against other developments.  I also happen to be a member of the public like you and a local resident.  I also spent 10 years working for local authorities specialising in enforcing against harmful or unauthorised development.  So on what basis are you 'pigeon-holing' me ? - maybe just because I've dared to disagree ?.

My concerns are nothing to do with the respective merits (or lack of them) of this specific building, but about the procedural side of things generally.  Which, without wishing to patronise, I know a hell of a lot more about than you.  Is it unreasonable or unfair for me, as a local resident, to have concerns about procedural matters and how our local authority conducts itself ?.  It makes me laugh given how other times people claim that I'm bound to defend Councils because I used to work for them - make your minds up people !.

As I said in my first post, had this application not come along when it did, the extension to the Conservation Area wouldn't exist today, and given the speed at which it was introduced there is no doubt it was done solely to frustrate the applicants seeking to demolish the pub, rather than any laudable aim to preserve and enhance the character and appearance of the wider area.

In my time working for Councils I've been involved in matters like issuing an emergency TPO to protect an unprotected tree from being removed by development, but the point is that such action is directed at a specific site or feature, rather than a wider area, whereas in this case a considerable sized area has been subjected to the restrictions that come with Conservation Area designation solely because of one specific application for one site.  That really isn't good practice, simple as.

Like John, I haven't seen or been party to any element of the judicial review, but based on the front page article it would appear that the High Court feels the developers have some kind of a case, which would only suggest that my concerns are entirely legitimate.
