I have just read Tom Bloxham's column (AJ 07.07.07) and agree that better-resourced planning offices and better-paid planners are required; most of the decent planners I have dealt with in Leeds have jumped ship and gone into private practice due to these issues.

However, I think this needs to be taken one step further as even the most pro-active planners (and just occasionally you do find one) struggle against the archaic ward members and councillors of the planning committee.

Any thoughts on how the committee process can be adapted to help planners?
