In a “failure to determine” appeal relating to a proposal for extensions to a house in north London (DCS Number 400-023-846) we found this commentary from an inspector:-

“The Council relies on a Delegated Report as their appeal statement. Most of the report is poorly written and parts are unintelligible.”….”Other parts of the report are incorrect…”…. “It is worth noting… that parts of the report…appear to relate to a different proposed development.”

We can do better than this, can’t we?

Section 5.344 of DCP Online concerns “failure to determine” appeals.
