The inspector appointed is: Ms Mahoney. It appears that a query has been raised concerning this appointment as the following letter from the inspectorate addressed to TDC has appeared on the TDC website:
The inspector has asked me to inform you of the following: Further information has been requested in relation to the role of Inspector Mahoney at Tendring District Council. She worked there as a Planning Officer in Development Control in the East Team responsible for the Harwich area and its hinterland (this did not include St Osyth) from 1982 – 1987. Since then, as a Planning Inspector, she has undertaken a number of planning appeals in Tendring District without challenge. Inspector Mahoney is content that she can deal with this inquiry in an open, fair and impartial manner.
