Boles Resurrects the Local Plan Database

Boles on Wednesday said he was monitoring weekly the progress on the late runners without an up to date adopted plan.  How given the government announced with a flourish last year that it was abolishing its own local plans database, forcing many such as me to create our own.  Of course the database has been resurrected as it was inevitable and unlike the council tax database one presumes the CD was never given to big Eric.  Its abolition was a clear example of the neo-liberal Redwood doctrine, don’t keep statistics, don’t keep databases, because without data you starve the public sector beast and the private sector can operate unregulated.  A doctrine that fails of course when by definition the activity is a public sector one.
