Spare a thought for ex-England football manager Kevin Keegan, who has run into trouble with planners in Romsey, Hampshire. A scheme to develop 24 'up-market' homes on land there has been withdrawn before even being considered by Test Valley Council. Keegan is an investor in the developer for the scheme, Ladyburn Properties, which had offered to abandon a scheme with permission for a golf course, giving over the land for public use in return for a residential approval on part of it. According to the company, the council encouraged the new application - and then turned against it. Keegan must be as sick as a parrot.
