I received details of this planning application http://tinyurl.com/6dcj5n
through the door yesterday (incidentally five days after the date on the letter, cutting the consultation period by nearly 25% before it even starts).
Try clicking on the links - only the first of then ten works. Not much use. So, ring the case officer, methinks, a certain 'Fennel Mason'. Except his voicemail sonorously tells he's onholidy til the 10th september. Er, there's a 21 day consultation limit, of which AFAIC he's only around for 2 days of - what's the point giving me his name in the first place?
Never mind, his voicemail also says I can ring his boss (Rob). But bugger, Rob's phone picks up and says voice mailbox full, ring back later. How much later than three hours is 'later'.
Never, *never*, mind, Mr. Mason's voicemail reminds me of the general planning number. Blow me, voice mailbox full too.
I've emailed the shower of sh*tes. Is this sort of crap usual?
