Members of the Civic Society have been at the E in P as observers and
notetakers. The language of professional planners is difficult to follow with
multiple acronyms and references to 'para xyz sub-section 123' but every now
and then a glimpse of light when a witness describes the consequences of
massive development in this area and for me that was expressed by the fear
we would encircle our ancient market towns with 'soviet style workers flats'
and what we should all be concerned with is planning for the'next hundred
years in terms of sustainability and quality.'
