    Did you turn up at the planning meeting with a picture of a straw man ?

    That’s always guaranteed to win an argument.

    I’d like to formally thank all those I’ve crossed swords with on here over the years. You’ve all helped to develop my skills in arguing and internet research and I’ve recently found a real world application for these skills. Tonight my research and arguments helped to result in the correct outcome at a planning meeting – not only a refusal of planning permission, but the setting out of position which gives us the best chance of winning at an appeal.

    Thanks chaps, I couldn’t have done it without you.

    You didn’t go in waving a well known variety of suspension fork?

    It’s good for the mind, to discuss, because once you can perceive an argument from both sides, you are better equipped to understand the full problem. Saying all that 650b, no thanks ๐Ÿ˜†

    No we didn’t

    Please tell me that at some point during the discussions you got bored and showed everyone an animated gif of an Alsatian instead.

    Arguing on STW is serious bizznizz.

    I’ve always been right for as long as I can remember, but through using STW I have come to understand that there are some poor deluded souls out there that are convinced that they are also right..

    This has helped me greatly in my dealings with Mrs Yunki

    I thought I was wrong once, but I was mistaken…

    Was someone planning to use a compact chainset on a roadbike? ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Assuming she’s female, she IS always right.

    Is this the one near The Crown aracer?

    Has it been called in or will they appeal to “the lovable Mr Pickles”?

    That’s the one, Stoner – appeal is already in for “non determination” – last night was MHDC taking a position on it. Spoke with the chairman of the committee after the meeting who was particularly scathing about Pickles – she is a Conservative!

    aracer, I think you need to post a link to the planning application so ninfan someone can arbitrarily take the opposing view to yours and argue it all over again on here. ๐Ÿ˜€

    BTW friend of my wife’s works in planning for our local authority and says it’s very rare indeed (at least in Jannersville) for the planning committee vote to go against the reccommendations of the council officer from planning department who reports/comments on the application. If that was the case too then double well done.

    Thanks, camo; I love the way the gorilla overarms that huge chunk of dirt, then legs it before anyone realises he’s lobbed it! ๐Ÿ˜†

    STW argue? I just assume we are all like this:

    No – the planning officer recommended refusal. However most importantly we got a couple of extra reasons for refusal included in addition to those of the planning officer, one of which disputes the opinion of the county highways officer (I put my STW skills to work to prove him factually incorrect on a couple of points) – I’d imagine that is even more unusual! They should help a great deal at the appeal.

    I should point out that it’s not all that unusual around here for the planning committee to refuse permission when the planning officer has recommended approval – I found a few cases like that when researching – though it’s certainly the norm to go with the planning officer’s recommendations.

    Don’t forget that when you lose the appeal, you can always claim you only opposed the application for a laugh anyway.
