I have rather belatedly discovered this item from December on the Paper Shop Blog (http://www.hunnymonster.org.uk/): The BBC News website reports that the SBC Councillor for Duns (previously mentioned here for bizarre letters to the Berwickshire News) has welcomed the plans for 62 additional houses in the town despite 50 objections received by the planners at SBC. Is this a wise move less than 6 months from election day?
In Huttonian's immodest opinion a SBC Councillor for an area very slightly closer to Duns has an erratic rather than bizarre attitude to planning which hardly seems appropriate for a member of the planning committee. He too may be in danger of courting popular displeasure as the elections loom but perhaps he and the hon councillor for Duns are not planning to risk the verdict of the ballot box next time round.
Its a bit of a conundrum
