Ian Robson’s column in today’s “Sunday Sun” highlights a name well known to those who object to planning applications: “The Duke of Northumberland, Ralph Percy”. Well known to people in Northumberland, said Percy Duke has more objections to his past planning plans than Alan Shearer has England caps. He is also well known to those of us who campaigned against his plans for various tracts of land within the Northumberland area.
Yet this time, the boot is on the other foot. Old Ralph Duke'y has objected to certain plans to build a batch of houses in his “”fiefdom” as they may be bigger than “his future plans”.
I would love to hear his legal argument on this issue!
