    Strange that the Chair of Planning has a motion praising Treetops Special Needs school.

    I am sure this has nothing to do with his support and his voting for, against officers advice, for the housing development on the Fireman's site in Aveley.

    Part f the reason he gave for supporting this greenbelt development was the money the developer giving t the community, including money for a new sports hall for Treetops.

    His motion has nothing to do with Eric Pickles MP calling this development in has it?

    Surely he wouldn't be using the borough's special needs kids to score some political points against those campaigning against the development in Aveley would he? That really would be a rather cynical thing to do.

    Score: 1
