They've finally got it

Congratulations to the British press they have finally succeeded in writing an article about Wales which is relatively accurate and balanced. I refer of course to the Guardian Online rather than the Daily Mail or Daily Express...that would be far too much to expect.

The article concerns the campaign throughout Wales to bin the Local Development Plans as they do not cater for local needs and the sheer number of new houses being built in Welsh speaking areas will be harmful to the Welsh language and local identity.

Can't say I was aware of any campaign throughout Wales to bin the LDP plans.

How can you have an LDP if it is based on inaccurate population projections which all are.

While it's good to see the issue dealt with more honestly in the UK media I'd like to see more focus on the system that produces these insane 'projections', and the civil servants who operate this system.

The civil servants have handed over their responsibilities to consultants like GVA Grimley. What we can't ascertain is the relationship between the consultants local authorities use and developers, but we can guess.

How does this effect (for example) planning for future place requirements in schools?
