An interesting thread starting to appear around the story involving local planning. I would be very interested to know why the council planning department has not taken action in regard to a sign in Westgate’s Canterbury road as one of our readers alleges in his correspondence.
He or she writes:
“I contacted TDC planning by telephone and spoke to the officer dealing with this application advising that no action had taken place with reference to the sign and lights. After one further month the sign etc., were still as previous. I contacted the same planning officer by e-mail asking for an update and seeking to know if an extension had been granted for the work to be carried out and advising that the sigh was now attracting graffiti artists (the graffiti now having been removed). A confirmation e-mail advising that my e mail was received by TDC was received by me. One further month later without any action being taken and without a reply from the planning officer concerned I again contacted the planning officer by e-mail. Yet again a receipt of my e-mail was received. We are now 35 days later still without a reply from the planning officer and no changes to the sign.”
Would anyone from TDC care to comment on this apparent delay in taking remedial action?
