.... modern secular planning control procedures are transparent ....

No, they are not.  You try and get the names of those who have objected to a
planning application, so you can talk the matter over with them before the
matter goes to the local Planning Committees.  You can't.  Then you are at
the mercy of the personal tastes of members of the committee.  The trouble
we had getting the dormer windows we wanted was unbelievable; despite other
houses in the area having dormer windows, 'velux' windows were considered
'more appropriate' (and I am talking of a late 50's estate, not a
conservation area).  Finally the committee refused to consider computer
simulations of the site.

Planning Committees, bah, humbug.
