"This is not just about the ferry.
More it is about despoiling a large swathe of open land which can be enjoyed by all. Open vistas are important and buildings which spoil these ruin the pleasure walkers and cyclists enjoy.
I share your concern on this one. What I would say, in officers' defence, is that they have to tread incredibly carefully. If they fail to follow procedure properly; if they fail to get the correct document, the correct…"
