    In recent corresspondence with the National Trust they informed me that they have undertaken market reseach and found that around 70% of locals would not be interested in helping to produce local plans.

    In the case of a small town in Essex where the Parish Council seems to oppose every planning application they have advertised for four people to undertake, without pay, a new plan for the area after being told at a recent local Appeal that there evidence was basically “hearsay”……………………if you can read between the lines does anyone expect localism to work?

    Two excellent real time examples.
