I find it depressing that, some fifty years after the publication of "Plain Words", a public official can get away with writing "The Council has accrued a certain financial benefit from this arrangement"
rather tham "The Council receives some money from this deal".
I wonder whether the "strict conditions attached in terms of the type of landscape that they can install in this area" will prevent the erection of any more horrible walls like the ones along the road boundary. NB: This may just be my crashing snobbery on my part- I certainly wouldn't want "to be seen dead" (or at least inflict on my relatives) what looks more like a"build your own patio" feature from a 1970s gardening show - maybe others like it.
