Planning process takes too long
I THINK Paul Collinson (Write Back, October 5) raised an important issue regarding the present state of the planning process here in relation to John Lewis.
It has taken far too long and everyone knows planning here needs to be more open.
The public inquiry meeting planned in early 2013 looks like it will generate more heat than light.
I look forward to attending it myself and will be raising a number of relevant questions.
