No, we are not on the same side, either as regards superstores or the Town Plan. For all the supposed neutrality on the former, you have been wholly pro-superstore from the moment Sainsbury's threw its cap into the ring, if not before. One of the letters in the Council's file in favour was from you. It was longer than most but totally supportive of Sainsbury's application. The idea that you somehow played a part in getting Sainsbury's turned down is bizarre. As regards the Town Plan, it is about an awful lot more than whether or not we ever have a superstore, which is why people from both sides of the LESS/LOTS divide are active on it. Only one person, to the best of my recall, has been publicly rubbishing the whole idea from the word go and that's you.

Some people like to get involved from the onset, others along the way, others not at all. For my part, I look forward to seeing the fruits of your labour when the proposals are made available for public consultation. Any representations I might have could be given to the LTC at the time and thereafter may be included in an Alternative Sites Register to be considered by the Government Inspector in the Examination of the LDP to ensure compliance, based on ten criteria for assessing soundness.

So far, in my own way, and left to my own devices I've contributed to Tesco's withdrawal, and to the defeat of Sainsbury's. Isn't that what you want?
