Incompetence or verging-on-the-criminal: Shropshire Council’s fiddling of the books (with help).

Meanwhile, watch this as a working example of how “viability” works for Shropshire Council who, in our test case, are actually arguing the developer’s case for them.

Lots more examples going back years, but our planners seem to have refined both the process (seamless, and I nearly said painless except that anyone in desperate need of an affordable house will need to stick it out for a while longer) and the arguments (disingenuous) used to justify giving away our money.

It’ll probably be about a week before the final article appears.
