Received the same response this afternoon from Development & Regeneration Services. Nothing from my local councillor though, but I didn't really expect anything from her somehow.

I've made my feelings on this proposal clear so feel I can say this with a clear conscience and without bias...

Do you not think it might be a bit inappropriate for one of the local councillors to comment on what has become a very controversial planning application? Oh, and there's more than one Councillor on here, though you'd never know it!
here i go, it's coming for me through the trees

No! Far from it! It's 'highly' appropriate for a cooncilor to set their stall out in public.

Particularly as if a Councillor on the planning committee does make a public statement on the issue, they are not allowed to then vote on the issue at Committee. Code of Conduct for Councillors, Section 7

7.9 It is possible that you may receive representations from interested parties in relation to planning applications. If you are a member of the committee which deals with planning applications, or if you are to attend a meeting of the Council to consider planning applications, and you wish to respond to lobbying by constituents or others by openly advocating a particular course of action prior to the meeting, you must declare an interest and not take part in any consideration of the application in question and you must leave the meeting room until consideration of the matter is concluded.

7.10 If you propose to take part in the consideration of planning applications at a meeting of a committee or of the Council, you must not give grounds to doubt your impartiality. You must not make public statements about a pending application, to ensure that you are not seen to be prejudging a decision which will be made at the meeting where all the information required to take a decision will be available. You must not indicate or imply your support or opposition to a proposal, or declare your voting intention, before the meeting. Anyone who may be seeking to influence you must be advised that you will not formulate an opinion on a particular proposal until all available information is to hand and has been duly considered at the relevant meeting.

^ That is fucking bollocks!(not you AD, the quote) If I vote/put my wee tick in a box for someone then it's my right to know what, and who, that wee tick gets me!

Anyway, the cooncil has a short memory what happened last time they tried to tinker with Pollok park(M77). I will personally make the whole thing 'financially unviable'
