We've be most kindly sent this speech to Parliament by the Labour MP for Hendon, Andrew Dismore. In it he rounds on Barnet Council for seeing demolition of family houses by, sometimes aggressive, developers and seeing them replaced by blocks of flats. He goes into some great detail and speaks with some passion link here.
This is somewhat odd as it would place, supposedly, Conservative Cabinet Member for Planning Melvin Cohen, to the LEFT of Andrew Dismore. We're told by people more clued up than us that GCfB has given up on bring in tough policy to protect family houses in exchange for £1,000,000s in grant for the Planning Service from the Government.
Any chance of the Conservative (?) Council doing Conservative stuff (or even Andrew Dismore Labour style would do on this issue)
