Fine words

As planners we strive for clarity and precision when writing committee reports and site appraisals, so it’s useful to keep a mental folder of relevant vocabulary. You might like to file the following from a recent appeal decision (DCS Number 400-017-750).

“It …. is enclosed …. by trapezoidal section steel cladding.” and “The roof is sinusoidal profile asbestos sheeting.” Is that class, or what? It’s certainly a step up from ‘wriggly tin’ and ‘corrugated asbestos’.

Happy to share.

    Some years ago we had an appeal decision which referred to a ‘gallimaufry of design’ – I’ve not yet managed to use the term in a committee report!
