You got me Julian ;-)

Claire, being good with people doesn't mean agreeing with their viewpoint/supporting them.  As the old saying goes, there's nowt as queer as folk, and front-line staff in local government have to deal with residents who possess some very diverse opinions.  For me, after 10 years of it I'd had enough, it's a thankless task and I needed more of a challenge and more personal satisfaction. 

Just like on this forum, I sometimes get accused of being completely pro-development, other times I get accused of being completely defensive of Council staff.  Neither accusation is remotely true, but it comes with the territory as too many people only sees things from one perspective. 

Funnily enough probably my favourite elements of working within planning have always been public exhibitions and committee meetings.  As I always say at public exhibitions I'm not there to convince anyone that a scheme is the best thing since sliced bread, I'm there to answer technical questions and have a two-way dialogue with people, yet I know of many planners, both within the public and private sectors, who hate public exhibitions or planning committees.
